Amber is recognized for her floral paintings, with their fine detailed realism and strong contrasting lights.
Amber started off as a qualified signwriter, back in the days when they used a brush and paint, hence her great brush and observation skills. In 1990 she started painting boats and coastal scenes in watercolour, later moving on to acrylics.
Amber has been a full time artist since 1998, with rising success and selling across the world. Amber now works primarily with oils, creating her signature florals, along with handmade and printed etchings, created in her little studio in Whenuapai, Auckland. Amber challenges herself with each painting, from photographing the flowers through to the finished paintings, all to create that ”you can almost touch” factor.
Amber also teaches painting to adults at the Kumeu Art Centre, and runs boutique painting tours to Wanaka and France with her husband.
