About Amber Gittins
My artwork is inspired by nature and my paintings are predominately abstract landscapes and floral foliage filled with bold, engaging colours.
I work intuitively and rarely have a set goal in mind, other than knowing the colour palette I’m working with. My brushstrokes are quite spontaneous and this helps reflect the movement that I like to portray. Nature is rarely still, with natural plant growth and constantly changing environmental factors. I like to represent these environmental changes as a type of visual textural energy.
My paintings are abstract expressionist style and I start off quite loose but I will add details once I am happy with the overall composition and colour theme. It is these final details which allow for the overall calming and elegance that structurally binds the work together into a visually pleasing painting.
Being an artist is where I find my peace and happiness and it’s who I need to be. Ultimately I hope that people find a sense of personal beauty in my art that conveys to their own happiness. I also hope that my art invokes an inner respect for nature and the land that we live in, so we can maintain this beauty and growth for many generations to come.
I have a Bachelor of Visual Communication.
My work is in collections throughout Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
I donate works to charities for fundraising, including The Starlight Children’s Foundation and Epilepsy Australia.
My work has been exhibited and won awards in Art Competitions.
In 2018 I was selected as a finalist in the Art Lovers Australia Award.
