Our Mission

As natives of Delmarva (the peninsula comprised of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia) we enjoy capturing images of the region where we live and the places where we travel. We joined together in 2005 to form TossAmey as a way to share stories and explore new ways to capture images of the world around us.

Matthew Amey has been an artist for over 25 years, working with both analog and digital processes to create his works. He prefers painting in oils although he also works with acrylics, glass, metal, photography and skin. He has been a professional tattoo artist since 1991 and, in 2012, he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Delaware.
