Amber Lee Williams is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in St. Catharines. Following the birth of her daughter, she decided overnight to return to school and is currently in her 4th year of an undergraduate degree in Visual Arts at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Drawing from a wealth of real life experiences and hard-earned lessons, her work explores themes of identity, family relationships, birth, death, and chance. Amber's areas of art include analog, digital, and experimental photography, drawing, sculpture, assemblage, painting, and more. Her process involves exploring several different mediums within the same piece of work. She searches for meaningful ways that different materials can work together in order to create work that is personal and relevant.
