About Amelia Rose Sullivan

Amelia is a thriving contemporary artist and photographer residing in Phoenix, Arizona. Born in Springfield Massachusetts, she moved to the west coast at a young age where she spent a majority of her adolescence. Her formative years were shaped by intimate, personal strife including surviving a natural disaster and the unexpected death of her father.

From the years 2008-2011 Amelia studied abroad with a performing arts college teaching children and performing on stage. In 2011 after living in Japan for the spring the tsunami and earthquake hit and it was quite literally earth shattering. She decided to return home to America and begin a new career path after re-evaluating different aspects of her life. She had fallen so deeply in love with shooting through-out her travels and decided to dedicate herself to pursing a new career path in photography and art.

During her studies in Los Angeles at Santa Monica College she had the opportunity to intern for influential artists working in the industry. It wasn't until she returned home to Arizona after school that she found her voice in the art world. 

In her artistic process, Amelia has evolved from photographing and documenting political issues and street scenes to creating contemporary art with the photos she captures. With each image captured, she attempts to tell an honest story that only lives for a fleeting moment.
