Amber Avery's Profile

About

I am a self-taught artist native to Southern Arizona. Born (but not raised) in eccentric Bisbee, Arizona to insanely talented artistic parents. It’s in my blood. I’ve only recently taken up painting, but oil paint very quickly became my favorite medium. I’m a perfectionist to a fault and am my own worst critic, as most artists are. I have more inspiration than time, and more patience than sense. There’s nothing better than the moment a piece starts to pull together, and the effort begins to pay off. I can easily spend 60-80 hours on a single painting or drawing, and often force myself to step away before I ruin a good thing. Luckily the process of oil painting allows me to work on several pieces at a time.
