"Art is what I do to understand the world and and my place in it."
Amber Lee Olivier
I am a multi-passionate artist. I started college at the University of MN as a Theatre major/Dance minor but left for a more concentrated education in Dublin, Ireland at the Gaiety School of Acting. I went on to study in Reggio Emilia, Italy at ArsComica in commedia dell'Arte. I have performed as an actress, dancer and singer around Europe from Greece to Northern Ireland, Mexico, and various places in the US.
The result: my paintings, masks and sculptures all have a theatricality; there's a story being told in each image.
I still work as an actress, dancer and singer, teach yoga and fitness classes and in later 2023 will be a certified personal trainer and wellness coach to work with individuals to achieve their "whole fitness goals" of body, mind, spirit. And, I have the funniest, and objectively, most awesome dog. Lab-pit mix, Signora Babbling "Brooke."
