Catch a stolen glimpse of the secret places where magic things dwell. Discover Amber Alexander’s fantasy art.

Prior to pursuing a career in art, Amber served as an active duty soldier deployed in Kuwait. After doing a bit of soul-searching to determine her true path, she decided to acquire a training in traditional art from the University of California at Berkeley. However, a few months before graduation, Amber discovered digital art. Once she taught herself the ins and outs of digital painting and became adept at the use of the computer to produce artwork, she realised that this was the medium for her.

Amber states that she has an interest in artists with a strong personal style, something she says she tries to capture in her own work. She includes John Singer Sargent, Peter Chung and Amy Brown among her list of favourites.

As a recent graduate, Amber now takes freelance illustration commissions. She currently has several projects-in-progress, including an illustration for the official web site opening of the R. & R. Barrs book Javen, the Curse and the Apogee’s Sign. She is also in the process of designing a series of angelic figurines for AngelStar.
