Amber’s love of story has taken her down many different paths in life, not only as a writer, but first, as an artist. She earned her BFA in Painting and then went on to earn a master’s degree in Art History. With a passion for uncovering the work and lives of visual artists, she entered into decade-long career in the art and museum world, where she began to find her voice in the written word – these are some of the stories that inspired her to begin tell her own.
