These carved furniture and door are handcrafted by Amber Jean from Livingston, Montana, US.
Amber Jean first appeared in the media at age six when she took first place in a national drawing competition.
While in high school, her artwork was selected to represent talented youth, and was displayed in Washington DC.
Amber created a life-size figurative sculpture in steel when she was 16 and taught herself to carve with a chainsaw while in her 20’s.
Amber left Montana at the age of seventeen for Europe.
While in Germany, she showed her portfolio to the
director of the Bremer Kunstshule and was asked to be a guest student.
Returning to America after a year abroad,
Amber received many awards and scholarships that fueled her studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Montana State University.
Sharing her success story Amber Jean has been in various TV, radio, and print appearances.
Quoted from her website:
“I am fueled by adventure both inside and outside of the studio. Compelled to explore, I push boundaries, experiment, and scare myself. I’ve been shipwrecked on a Mexican island, stepped on by a bear while sleeping alone in the backcountry, nearly blown off the top of Mt Rainier, flipped in Class Five rapids, and completely mesmerized while climbing frozen waterfalls.
Exploring, I push my physical and mental limits while creating art and living life.”
