Amber Alexander’s Whimsical Animal Art!

Amber Alexander’s artwork is, in my opinion, perfect for a child’s bedroom or nursery!  Her fanciful creatures are sure to inspire the imagination of both young and old.   You can’t help but fall in love with the characters in her paintings, and imagine endless tales of what they could be doing and thinking!

Take a look at some of her available prints:

Getting to know Amber Alexander, the artist behind these whimsical imaginings!

Please introduce yourself, tell us a little bit about yourself and your family.
I’m Amber Alexander. I live on 5 acres in the country in Vermont with my husband and two high energy, crazy standard poodles.

How did you get started with your art and what pushed you to start selling prints?
I have always been artistic, but only in the past couple of years started to explore selling my art. I used to draw, but never really painted until I created my Etsy Shop. I joined Etsy after I learned to needle felt a couple of years ago, and sold a couple of animals right away. After that, I picked up a paintbrush and started painting and never looked back!
Do you have a favorite piece of your own art?

A couple: “Stood Up” (the rabbit just looks so put out, yet proud) and April in Paris (love this guy because he is so happy looking, and curious!… he can smell the parisian pastries…. mmmmmmm)
What is your greatest honor or accomplishment?
When someone emails me and tells me how much my art makes them smile or laugh. That is THE best.
Do you have a day job or hobbies that keep you busy aside from your art?

Art is my day job.. but aside from that, I run, I bike, play with the poodles and garden!
Tell us one little-known or interesting fact about you.

:-) hmm. Okay. I used to drive a dump truck ( I was pretty young) – one of those huge ones with a 3 foot wide steering wheel. I had to stand up in the truck to turn the wheel.  The other thing is that I dream of writing and illustrating my own children’s book. I recently illustrated one for a Vermont publishing company- Radiant Hen. The title is “Ninny Nu’s Organic Farm” and it’s about animals running a farm and trying to do “the right thing”
What would you like to share with my readers about your store and artwork?
I’m happy to hear from people, I love to make people laugh and smile. I am a huge animal lover and try to express my love and appreciation of their lives through my paintings.

My Thoughts:

Amber was kind enough to send me two of her gorgeous 8 x 10 prints and two of her paintings as note cards for review:


Shipping:
I received my package from Amber Alexander quickly and found everything to be in perfect condition, ready for framing.  The prints were protected by a clear sleeve and cardboard to avoid bending.

Print Quality:
The quality of my prints is excellent!  The colors are vivid and beautiful and the paper is heavy and obviously quality.  In the listing, Amber states that her artwork is printed with “Epson Ultra Chrome pigment inks on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Paper”.

Framing: I had no trouble whatsoever in framing my lovely prints.  They fit nicely in the 8.5 x 11 frames I purchased as seen below.  If you framed them in 8 x 10 the white border wouldn’t show, but I enjoy the effect with the black frames.

I loved the print of the bear, cat, and rabbit having a tea party so much that I put it in my kitchen above the stove.  I love looking at it while I cook!  It makes me smile, even if I burn something.  ;-)  It also gives me something different to watch rather than a pot of water that, as you know, will never boil as long as you’re looking at it.  ;-)

I’m very happy with my prints and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amber Alexander to anyone!
