As the economy in most parts of the world, today is becoming increasingly difficult, most people are looking for ways to stay afloat. For example, many families are becoming more and more open to spending less and saving more. This attitude has made DIY an increasingly attractive way of life. And when it comes to renovating houses, the image of a man working with a trowel and spreading the mortar emerges. But what happens when it’s a petite lady like American licensee Amy Mathews who fills in the picture instead? This is exactly what we have seen on various reality TV programs over the years in her own way, and it is absolutely puzzling to her.
So in this article, we would like to share some never-before-seen details about Amy’s unique career. Be prepared to also learn a few things that people think about the TV star that is not really true.
Here Are Interesting Facts To Note About Amy Mathews’ Career
Amy Mathews Picked Her Interest and Skills In Home Improvement From Her Father
Although many sources (such as Wikipedia) claim that Amy Mathews’ first encounter with home improvement can be attributed to the fact that she traveled with her church youth group to repair homes for needy families when she was 14 years old, we have found that this is very far from the truth. In this interview, which she granted to Bob Villa, Amy revealed instead that she got the inclination for DIY from her father, whom she describes as “an incredible DIYer. She recounts how she grew up watching her father rebuild her family home many times. She also expresses the conviction that the tendency is not only due to observation, but is also genetic.
Amy Mathews was born on May 19, 1973, in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, where she also grew up. Although we have no details about her parents (such as name and profession), she has revealed – as shown above – that her father had the same hobby as she did, namely DIY.
She Has Been On More TV Shows and Channel’s Than Many People Know
The rate of audience reception that Amy Matthews has enjoyed over the years is living proof of how many people in the U.S. and around the world are DIY fans. This has been very evident in the many television programs where she has performed her DIY work.
While many sources seem to associate Amy only with DIY Network’s Bathroom Renovations and Sweat Equity and some sources add Renovation Raiders on HGTV, she has actually identified with more programs than that. For example, she was part of the Blog Cabin Show on DIY Network and HGTV. She also hosts a show of the same name on The Design Network, known as Modern Rustic with Amy Matthews. She also hosts DIY Network’s This New House and has worked with Bob Villa of This Old House on PBS. On several occasions, she has also appeared on national news programs on major media outlets such as ABC and CNN.
Amy Is Not Interested In Home Improvement Just For the Money
Very successful people like Steve Jobs and Oprah Winfrey have always pointed out that if someone wants to be successful in anything, money should not be the main motivating factor. We have found that this is especially true of Amy Mathews. She has never been involved in DIY for the sake of money or fame. Instead, she was simply expressing an interest that was burning inside her. It is therefore not surprising that her extensive pro bono work with renowned charities such as Habitat for Humanity and the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project is still well known today.
During one of her projects with Habitat for Humanity in Thailand, Amy Mathews was so keen to participate in the project that she had her left forearm tattooed with a word in Thai letters that supposedly means “humanity”.
And Then, She Is Also An Actress
Amy Mathews has also worked as an actress. Apart from her appearances in many national and regional commercials, she has starred in a number of films. We also learned that after graduating from Boston University and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, she worked with at least four theater groups in her home state of Minnesota.
Misconceptions About The Personality of the American General Contractor
Amy Mathews, the American general contractor who is associated with a do-it-yourself makeover on some TV channels, has been confused with another person from Australia with the same name as her. Australian Amy Mathews, for example, is an online personal trainer and yoga instructor, but many misguided bloggers keep reporting that it is the contractor. We were able to confirm this on the Australian yoga teacher/personal trainer’s website, where she lists courses such as “embodied anatomy and kinesiology” for bones, ligaments, and muscles as well as “embodied movement explorations” and yoga. Even in the pictures of personal trainer Amy, you can confirm that she is not the same person as the DIY specialist and TV star.
It is also rumored that Amy Mathews (the contractor) has performed several surgical procedures, including Botox, nose surgery, facelift, and skin filler. But this is also a mistake because she is not the right one. This is certainly a different Amy Mathews.
In our opinion, the names “Amy” and “Mathews”, which make up the TV DIY star’s name, are responsible for these misunderstandings, as they are quite common. So many people are forced to use their names. It is, therefore, a lesson for all public figures to create unique brands from the beginning to avoid confusion later.
