"If you'll pardon the pun, this piece depicts the gooey center of the Milky Way; the caramel peacefully drifting in the vacuum of outer space," jokes Amber. Part of Amber's latest series of work bringing together vintage and contemporary references of the atomic age, space travel and childhood.

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.
