Amy Wilmoth Watts
Growing up in the south did nothing to dampen Amy Watt’s Western dreams. Despite being born on the wrong side of the Mason-Dixon Line, she has relentlessly pursued her cowgirl aspirations. Not only does she love to read Western history, she paints about it as well. Her Western heroes range from Quanah Parker to Kit Carson. Amy and her husband James live on a farm in Statham, Georgia where they raise beef cattle and ride and train Quarter Horses. Amy Watts has been showing her art since 2011. She has participated in Cowgirl Up! in Wickenburg, Arizona for three years, as well as shows in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Ellensburgh, Washington, Great Falls Montana and several in her home state of Georgia. Amy had a one woman show called “Cowgirl Dreams” at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia where her piece “Past History” is part of their permanent collection.
