Amber's paintings are explorations into music, movement and stories. Rhythm is at the core of all her work and derives from a life of dance and playing the violin.
Amber designs geometric patterns then overlays her work with free form lines and symbols that relate to the theme or “story” behind the painting. The result is a combination of order and chaos, precision and spontaneity. Amber's focus as an artist is in universal structures and mythologies relating to nature and human interconnectivity.
Amber studied Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Austria from 2005 till 2009. In that time Amber choreographed and performed both dance and live painting at various festivals, galleries and The Vienna Art Biennale. Amber's Visual Kinetic series exhibited at Wolframs Gallery.
Since returning to New Zealand, Amber gained her post-graduate diploma in Creative Pathways at Unitec in 2010. Her thesis was in the collaboration of dance and visual art forms.
