"I believe in the importance of travel, the beauty of nature and the complexities of humanity. As a painter when creating a portrait I find the beautiful idiosyncrasies of the subject's inner world beyond their surface expression. As a sculptor, learning the detail of 3D perspectives shows me places I never thought to look before. The secrets that nature (the true fine artist) keeps in mystery, the importance of travel to learn of places beyond our backyards and realizing the similarities - humans are incredible when we let them be and the sky is blue, grey, pink, green... everywhere on this planet." ~ Amber
I build masks from individual sculpted molds - no 2 faces are ever the same. I work in paper mache using old Venetian mask making techniques. Most of my masks have been used in theatrical performances and are the property of theatre companies.
