Amy Mills

Born and raised in Portland Oregon, Amy spent her childhood learning classical music, drawing, and photography. In 2005 she attended the Boston Conservatory for one year, but ultimately decided to transfer to the nearby Massachusetts College of Art where she earned her BFA in photography. Immediately following she moved to New York to attend Purchase College where she earned an MFA in music.


During her studies at Purchase she began learning woodworking and experimenting with instrument construction. This eventually led her to find a position with one of the top instrument restoration & repair shops in the world: Retrofret Vintage Guitars.
