My Bio
Hi all. I'm starting to get a few pics in the gallery now, so here's Amber's little intro. I've been drawing all my life, gradually improving and learning new skills. Like many, I'm self-taught, so my style and skill-level are constantly evolving. I started out in graphite (which I still use a lot), but have more recently started exploring charcoal, pastels, water-colors and the like. DeviantART is the most amazing site, and it's a little intimidating posting my work with so many brilliant artists out there. I really appreciate your comments and's very validating. If anyone has a picture or person they'd like to suggest I try my hand at, by all means send me an email and I'll give it a look. Commission work is also very welcome. I should be posting new stuff every week or so, so don't be a stranger. :) ThanX.

Hey all, I'm trying to get back into posting my art after a VERY long period of inactivity. Hoping to get a backlog of pics put up over the next few days, so keep an eye out. :)

Hey everyone. Just wanted to say a big THANK-YOU for all the birthday well-wishes. :) I was looking through my gallery and noticed I've been a bit lazy with posting new stuff. I have a few new pieces that I just haven't gotten around to putting up yet, so I'll try to get to them in the next few days. I really appreciate all the comments and encouragement with my art, so thanks a lot. I hope the coming year will be a great one. :) Cheers.

I recently got to see an amazing doco on Drew Struzen, who some might know from his very popular and well-loved movie poster work. Watching him work has really got me excited to try some of his techniques for myself. I've been trying to develop my skill working with colours, and it was so fascinating to watch a master like Struzen do his thing. I've decided to do piece on Buffy, using some of the fantastic comic book cover art that's out there as a base (I'm not a comic artist, but I LOVE that style), then maybe try my hand at something bigger. Will post what I come up with when it's done. :)
