ARTIST'S STATEMENT- AMBER WARDELL, WATERFORD, ONTARIO 

 

"I love helping others to connect with their creative spirits and watching new painters discover their own unique hidden talents."

                                       -Amber Wardell,                 Uncorked Art Parties owner and                 instructor

 

 

Vibrant colours and a sense of serenity and movement characterize Amber's mixed media work. A graduate of the University of Toronto, Amber blurs the lines between genres of art by integrating her original poetry into visual pieces. Darkness and light find a way to coexist together within layers of acrylic, beads, seeds, cotton, charcoal, vintage maps, books, and fabric. There are no boundaries to her exploration of method and subject matter; past themes include landscape, floral, wishes, winged things, and languages. Amber is a published author and recipient of Lighthouse Festival Theatre's Young Artist award.
