I am a working professional artist that has owned and operated PennDragon Studios since Jan 1990. After moving to the Atlanta area from Chicago in 1995, I continued to pursue my passion in Art through PennDragon Studios.
Along the way I have developed and mastered many skills including:
Painting: Acrylic, and various Faux-Finish Techniques
Lettering and Stenciling
Illustration: Pencil, Colored Pencil, Charcoal, Pen and Ink, Marker, Watercolor, and Airbrush
I am now beginning to explore Computer Graphics and Interactive Multi-Media.
I have worked with and apprenticed under many professional artists during my career including:
Jerry Nissen, John Dutcher, Nancy Bartush,
Ray Shlemon, William Alexander, Jr.,
Paul Michael Alexander, William Harris,
Sylvia Long, Roger Sawhill, and Berwyn Hung.
I”ve professionally worked with Interior Designer Jan Adams, Southern A & E, Atlanta, GA
In 1994 created the ambiance of Danellio’s Restaurant , Wheeling, IL
I value every bit of knowledge that I have found, been given, and continue to gain on this journey of Life and Art. As I said in the beginning of my career: "A wish is the foundation of one's goals, attaining those goals are the fulfillment of one's life."
I strive to fulfill my goals every day...Amy Stewart Hale, PennDragon.

Charitable Focus/Mission Statement
I believe an artist’s job is to give in ways that create a better world for people within their family, their community, their State, their Nation, and their world…
I am grateful for the ability I have through creation of art, and I believe that it is my duty to work toward a better society, I do this by living my truths through my work of donation and public appearances, I try to bring awareness to the issues facing women of domestic violence and homelessness, Art Education, Environmental and
Constitutional Rights Issues and various other needs our Nation is currently facing.
I believe fully in supporting the efforts that are working to effect change from a grassroots level, as well as a larger focus through programs that work to effect change on a National, and potentially world-wide scale.
