TESTIMONIALS

It's a rare gift in this life for a piece of art to capture the essence of a human being. But Amber, paint, brush, canvas and perhaps some divine inspiration did just this. I asked Amber to paint something for me, whatever she had in mind. When I unveiled the painting I was overcome with gratitude and awe. She painted my late father, sitting on a bench, smoking one of his beloved cigars and taking in the sea in County Kerry, Ireland. And, it was him. His essence. And, if there is such a thing as a Heaven, this would surely be it for him. Thank you Amber. You have a rare talent and a huge heart.

I love Amber’s work! I was searching for a piece that felt personal and energizing. I asked Amber to create something beautiful and she didn’t disappoint. Since I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, she asked me for one of my favorite quotes - the outcome is phenomenal and I couldn’t be happier.

I had the opportunity to purchase Amber's original painting "Reflections in a Canal: Venice", and adore how nicely it adds to my collection. I've had the fortunate experience of visiting Venice multiple times, which is probably why I was so captivated by this painting whenever I visited her studio--I just had to have it! The perspective is unique, and the way she's captured the motion of the water is distinctly mesmerizing. If she has prints available, I highly recommend you consider this piece in particular for its tranquility. Perfect for any room in the house that desires a splash of color!

When I first seen this, I thought, oh, it's Italy... this will inspire me to get to Italy. But now that this is in my home and on my wall, I get the opportunity to see the depth of what it brings to me. I feel the peace that it represents, the simplicity of living every day life, enjoying a moment in time knowing that something good is going to come from it. I feel the love that comes from this painting, two people enjoying each other's company in the quiet darkness of Italy. The sweetness that comes from the little things in life. These 2 are what I aspire to experience in life... Love.
