Upon leaving school I became a commercial artist working in the creative department of an advertising agency in Parnell. Following this, some freelance work evolved before I took up silk screen printing in my husband’s business. Nine years later and a great deal of experience in a highly demanding profession, motherhood came along and Amber became my priority.
Working from home on my art and assisting at the local primary schools, I designed and constructed sets for a number of theatrical productions. Backdrops and book illustrations became the norm for a number of years along with my passion for tennis which I played to a competitive level.
A position as the art specialist at an Intermediate School was followed by my passion to design and create gardens, thus Ambiance Gardens was born – my own business.
Along the way I have won awards and been successful with my entries to the Easter Show and submitted a number of works to exhibitions. I have had a number of commissions and have sold to collectors overseas and locally.
Having my own studio at my home has enabled my to further my artistic career and to share my passion with many art students.
