From the age of 4 Amber-rose’s decided that her dream was to be an artist. Through out high school art was her refuge, and she was thrilled to receive the schools top art prize in her final year. Despite early success, she resolved to keep art as a hobby and went on to study Genetics at university, completing a Bachelor of Science. Art was never very far from her mind though, and after completing her degree, Amber-rose found herself drawn once again by the creative pull.
Through a series of serendipitous moments, Amber-rose found herself the proud owner of a little art studio in Hampton, Victoria. Renaming it Blanc Canvas Studios, she turned it into a bustling small business, with classes highly sought after and places limited. Amber-rose’s role as Owner and teacher at Blanc Canvas Studios allowed her to fully immerse herself in a Fine Art career and to eventually leave the studio and dedicate her full time to her art.
