About Amy Clinkscales
Amy is an accomplished wanderer who delights in history and audio-visual stimulations. When she’s not playing her French horn, guitar or miscellaneous Gamelan instruments, you will likely find her on the highway or at a library. If you live in New Mexico, you might remember her from The Jenny Clinkscales Band, The Hopefuls, Gamelan Encantada or Mother Death Queen.
She has been known to study at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and once drove a 13-speed tractor-trailer down I-95 in Bridgeport, Connecticut. She currently resides in Albuquerque, where she studies Buddhism and has finally figured out how to get to work on time.
Meditation and Buddhist practices calm my mind and bring peace to my frenzied spirit, so I feel more like a creative human, less like a mouse on a wheel.
