Amy Herzel

Amy graduated from Augustana College with a BA in Studio Art. Following graduation she went to Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA and began working on a MA in Illustration.

While in Georgia, Amy volunteered in the Education Department at the Telfair Museum of Art. While working at the museum, Amy discovered that she enjoyed working within the museum more than studying Illustration. She then found the Museum Studies program here at Western Illinois University.

This is Amy’s first year in the program and began the coursework this summer, she is overjoyed to be part of the program.
