This website was created because people look for me either as a parks advocate or as an artist. I sign my pictures Amy W. Meyer, and otherwise use Amy Meyer. The "W" stands for "Waters" and identifies me to those who knew me before I married.
I was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., graduated from Oberlin College, and married George D. Meyer, a psychiatrist. He was sent to the Bay Area in the Korean War doctor's draft, and after his service we stayed here and moved into San Francisco. George died in 1998. Our daughters are married and live near me with their families in the city's Richmond District. We are a close-knit family. My grandchildren and I have fine park adventures and art expeditions together.
