Amber George is a painter and printmaker. Her work is informed by her observations of nature and the world around her. Whether in her garden or on a sailboat, her eye is keen to search out shapes and patterns in nature.
Growing up in California, she studied art from an early age. She spent her summers around her family in the Midwest, most of whom were raised on farms. Family vacations were spent making crafts, gardening, camping, horseback riding in the Rockies and being outside. She attributes these experiences to her profound love of nature and plants.
Amber George received her BA in Fine Art from UCLA in 1994. She studied with some of the most notable contemporary artists in Los Angeles, including Lari Pittman and Nancy Rubins. In addition to private collections across the US, her work is also included in numerous corporate collections such as Deloitte & Touche, Four Seasons, Kansas City Power and Light and Westin Hotels.
Her work has received additional attention from writers and gallery owners. Her painting Parasol Landscape was featured in the 2008 book Embracing Encaustic written by Linda Womack. The Museum of the Southwest in Midland Texas hosted a solo show of her paintings entitled Roots and Branches as a part of their contemporary art series Places in 2008. Studio Visit Magazine, a sister publication to New American Paintings, juried her work into their volume 15. In 2011, she curated a show for Susan Eley Fine Art in New York titled Making their Mark, focusing on artists who use mark making as the primary element in painting. At the end of 2011, HGTV featured her painting Buttons No. 3 in their Dream Home 2012.
