Amber Allen is a contemporary painter whose work combines her love of scientific theory, space travel, science fiction, and her Jewish heritage. Always on the lookout for fun yet thoughtful subjects, she favors bold colors, and explores the connections between our past and our future, with a current focus on space age themes as a metaphor for the progress of the human condition. Working primarily with oil paints, she uses a combination of palette knife and brushwork to give her work texture and interest.
Born in Indiana in 1992, but relocating to many different places around the US growing up, she completed her first still life painting at age fifteen and from that moment knew that she would become an artist. A graduate of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Allen has exhibited her work in solo and group shows in California and South Carolina, and paints full time at her studio in the San Francisco Bay Area.
