Teaching since:

I am a professional freelance artist, and owner of Leola Studios. I have been doing custom artwork for over 15 years, and have several contract jobs with businesses on my resume. I have an Associates Degree in Fine Arts/Animation from Academy of Art University.

I specialize in photo realism, and 90% of the private commissions I get are portraits. However, I work in a broad range of styles and mediums, from line work to abstract to sketch, with charcoal to paint to clay. I love expanding my knowledge and trying new things, but above all I love creating!! I feel that imagination and expression through art/music/literature are crucial to a person's development, and this is something I pass on to my daughters, and frequently fundraise for, in an attempt to keep art programs in our schools.

I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledge, so after having so many people ask me to show them how to draw, I began teaching. I've taught one on one, and classes large in size. I have also taught young children, up to age 98! I am very patient and don't mind a slew of questions! I want to help students become the best at their craft.

Art is my passion and so important in our world, with proven benefits! I'd like to think with teaching, I'm helping to keep it alive, even if just in my small way.

Amber is very talented! I wanted to learn to draw people realistically and before I started learning from Amber, I did not use charcoal much. Amber specifically targets the lessons and will help you reach your goals. I feel much more comfortable with charcoal. It feels good to have a finished product by the end of the lesson and to be proud of your work. Amber is talented also in teaching and has a very kind personality. I look forward to our lessons.

I have known Amber many years and can attest to her artistic capabilities. I have sat in on two of her painting classes; she was great at walking us through the piece step-by-step, and was very patient with all our questions. She laughed with us and made it fun! I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to learning from her again!

Amber taught me how to do a painting of a snow man so I can give to my mom for Christmas and she did a wonderful job teaching to where I can understand. And it turned out great.

Amber is the one I go to for any art related work I need. She is the most creative person I have ever met. She never disappoints.
