Mount Gambier SA
Predominantly my inspiration for my work comes from my love of exploring colour, my obsession with the beauty of nature and my life long fixation with the French Impressionists.
“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere”. Vincent Van Gogh.
He does have a valid point!
Amber Gittins is a nature obsessed, colour crazy abstract artist – who still has both ears – and 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!
Her work is held in private collections in Australia, UK, USA, Europe, Canada, New Zealand, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Amber has donated works to charities including The Starlight Children’s Foundation, Art for Bales and Epilepsy Australia.
Influences: Nature, French Impressionists, Vincent Van Gogh, Aboriginal Art, colour theory.
Amber’s work has been exhibited and won awards in Art Competitions.
Finalist in the Art Lovers Australia Award for 2018, 2019.
