Thank you for your interest in an AMBER original.

An AMBER original is not just another work of art. I'm a fine artist who creates for clients desiring a one-of-a-kind work of art expressing their inspiration. I love working with clients to select a medium. Each medium I offer varies in the time to complete and the materials required. Below are some estimates per medium. Shipping in the continental U.S. is included. 

Please email me for any questions you have or to schedule a consultation to discuss a work of art: amberartmn@gmail.com. I look forward to creating a meaningful work you will cherish and enjoy for a lifetime.

"Other" Art

Have an idea for painting on wood? Want something for a specific purpose like a door sign, mural in your home/office, let's talk ideas.

  • Example:

    • Door signs for yoga studio, 8"x6" acrylic on wood = $40 each​

Note: I do not reuse images, each project is unique. (Meaning I do not create a stencil and roll paint through it to be mass produced. Hand carved and hand painted 100% of the time)
