With vast experience in costuming for film and television, including an Emmy win for the HBO series "John Adams" (as costume supervisor), and a 2013 Emmy nomination for her costume designs for National Geographic Chanel's "Killing Lincoln", Amy Andrews Harrell brings a depth of knowledge and a discerning design sense to projects both period and contemporary.  

She has working knowledge of raising large scale productions from the ground up and over her 20 year career has worked with many top directors and actors.  But she also has a special passion for smaller projects which allow the creative team to excel.
