Brett Amory was born June 25th, 1975 in Portsmouth, Virginia. His father, Harry Amory, was a mechanic at a shipyard and his mother, Sally Roebuck, a nurse. When he was 21 Amory moved to San Francisco to study motion pictures at the Academy of Arts. Soon after enrolling in school, Amory took his first drawing class and was introduced to his passion for the arts. Around the time Amory celebrated his 24th birthday he tried his hand in painting. In 2002 Brett switched his major to fine art and started his current body of work called “Waiting”. This series of paintings explores the anticipation of the next moment.
Amory graduated from the Academy of Arts in 2005 and has shown his work all over the country. In 2006 Amory along with five other artists (Mars-1, David Choong Lee, Damon Soule, Nome Edona, Oliver Vernon) published a book called “Convergence” and had book signings in New York, Los Angeles and at the SFMOMA in San Francisco.
Amory currently works as a graphic designer at an environmental company in San Francisco and continues to show his work in galleries across the country.
