THE ART

THE FINISHING:

All of Amber's original artworks are hand signed on the front, then also signed on the back of the canvas as an extra added element that secures its originality. Amber paints the edges which is a continuation of the painting and believes it completes the artwork, plus you do not have to get it framed as it looks finished as is. If you can afford the extra for framing Amber recommends it, but it’s not a necessity.

Amber varnishes all her originals to help protect from dust and UV light. She loves that magical moment when the colours just ‘pops’ once the coats of varnish have been applied. Taking it to another level! 

She makes sure the hanging wire and D hooks are securely on the back, oh and she also hand signs and write the artwork name on the back of the canvas.

THE FRAMING:

Her original paintings can be framed and then sent to you, however this is only available if you live within Australia. As much as she would love to, unfortunately she cannot send stretched or framed artworks overseas. Any originals being sent overseas go rolled in a very secure tube, it is an easy process for your local framer to restretch and frame.

The frames are made of premium oak which is a raw and natural wood and compliments her style of artwork beautifully. This style of framing leaves that oh so perfect slight gap between the artwork and the frame and no glass it really does look amazing.

If you do want to add a frame please select this option in the drop down menu on each artwork listing. Also feel free to email Amber with any questions before purchasing.

AMBER NOW:

"Well here I am now in the picturesque Limestone Coast region of South Australia, albeit a bit bloody cold for my liking but still very beautiful. Living a very simple country life with my beautiful partner, (aka my packaging guru, keen listener, photographer) and our three very spoilt fur babies. My studio is in my backyard and I love just popping ‘out the back’ for work each morning with a fresh cuppa and my gorgeous puppies in tow."

"I love what I do and feel so grateful to be doing this every day and to have my family near by. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy exploring my art and I hope it brings you the same sense of calm and comfort as it does when I create it!"
