AMBER GITTINS 

Is a nature obsessed, colour crazy abstract artist who is at her happiest working from her studio in country Mount Gambier, South Australia. With a degree in Visual Communication she still applies her training in colour theory, negative space and embracing happy accidents. Her acrylic paintings are bold, colourful and full of joy.

Amber’s inspiration comes from her love of nature and travelling the world. Her unique style is developed from a mixture of imagination, instinct and emotion, bringing the canvas to life!
Amber hopes her art portrays a sense of fun and optimism and ultimately wants to bring colour, warmth and happiness into peoples lives!

  • "So so happy with this commissioned painting by Amber that adds colour and warmth to our new home. I tried for the longest time to find something suitable without success until one day this young artist popped up on my IG feed. She is very hardworking and very prolific on IG. Truly enjoyed the process of collaborating with her, getting updates on the work in progress and having the family's envisioned work of art come to reality.​"
