Portfolio Website: Amber Petersen
Amber Petersen is a visual artist living in Victoria, BC. Working primarily with acrylics and photography, she doesn't shy away from any artistic endeavour.
"In my paintings, I am drawn to creating bold lines and bright colours- something that catches your eye. I want to illuminate a space. In my photography, however, I am drawn to the opposite. Neutral, muted colours and desolate spaces. Finding the beauty in things that aren't commonly thought of as beautiful. In both mediums, though the end product differs, the process is the same. The process is what inspires me to create. And that is the process of following an abstract idea down the rabbit hole, not knowing what will come of it. My art is very impulsive."
