Killing Lincoln

In 2008 Amy won an Emmy Award, with costume designer Donna Zakowska, as costume supervisor for the HBO miniseries John Adams. She began costume designing about six years ago and has created work that reflects many styles, places, and time periods. She excels, however, in the 19th-century. In 2013 she was nominated for an Emmy for her costume designs for the National Geographic Channel docudrama, Killing Lincoln
