His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world, including the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh; the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Indiana; Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; and de Young Museum, San Francisco. He is currently a Grad Fellow at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Amory earned a MFA from Stanford University and a BFA from the Academy of Arts University. He lives and works in Oakland CA.
