ABOUT THE FOUNDERS:
Amina 'theEmpress' Boyd - Owner/Founder
As a multidimensional artist, educator, singer-songwriter, and maker, I draw inspiration from the rich cultural history and artistic expressions of the Buffalo community. With a passion for art, education, and community, I have dedicated myself to writing curriculum for maker-centered learning, focusing on art, steam and entrepreneurship. Through engaging and dynamic curriculum, I empower individuals to explore their creativity and reach their full potential.
Additionally, I am a passionate producer, singer, and songwriter, creating music that reflects my personal journey and experiences. With expertise in various artistic mediums, including digital fabrication, I continuously expand my creative repertoire. I am honored to serve on the board of the Galactic Tribe, advocating for educational opportunities and empowerment within the black community.
Arthaus Buffalo is a manifestation of my lifelong dedication to art, education, and community, aiming to elevate and inspire others to discover their passions and creative potential.

Beyond education, I have over 15 years of experience in arboriculture and landscaping, connecting deeply with nature and embracing the great outdoors.
