For this painting I started with the pattern and a completely different idea for the subject matter, but as I got further along it became apparent the what it needed was more life and color. I rarely paint flowers, but after this one I'm tempted to experiment more with plants and flowers.

Getting to Know Amber

Homeschooled as a child, Amber Allen could frequently be found doodling while her family moved around constantly. She began taking an online still life painting course at age 15 and became determined to pursue a career in art. “I knew as soon as I put the last brushstroke on that first assignment that life for me had changed,” says Amber. “Something had clicked into place.” Amber sources her still life subjects from real objects, images, and her imagination. She integrates geometric backgrounds into her paintings as an homage to her favorite topic from school, sacred geometry.
