Amy (known as Sue) was born in Heacham, Norfolk.
When Amy was 7, her father retired to Mexico, where Amy went to school, becoming proficient in both Spanish and English. She loved art, and won consecutive first prizes in Art Class. Her mother Eva, like to paint, as did two of her sisters.
In her late teens, Amy came to Canada, to continue her education, and went to the University of British Columbia. She discontinued her studies in her second year, due to lack of funds, and took her first job, working for the British Embassy in Washington.
In 1944, her fluency in Spanish led to a move to the British Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela,where she met her future husband, Cyril Cadman Janeway.
After their marriage in 1948, Amy joined Cyril (nickname Jim), and his 4 year old daughter, Phyllis Muriel, in Maracaibo, Venezuela. They had two children, Mary Susan in 1949, and Christopher Peter in 1952.
In 1961, the Janeway family moved to Vancouver, B.C., and not long after Amy started attending the Vancouver School of Art, where she studied under such teachers as Jack Shadbolt and Gordon Smith. After graduating from Art School, her work continued to improve as she took long trips in her Boler (a compact trailer) into the Rockies to camp, draw, paint and get inspiration for her work.
