Amber is a 3D artist based in Melbourne, Australia with a key focus in texturing, modeling and lighting design.

After spending most of her life studying, performing, directing and choreographing for theatre, she decided to explore other creative avenues with the hope of one day being able to explore her love for animation. 

Since graduating with her BA in Creative Advertising, Graphic Design & Digital Design from Curtin University, she has spent the last decade working as a Senior Graphic Designer, Multimedia Artist and Creative Producer across live events, in-house and ad agencies. Her work has included a wide variety of disciplines such as projection mapping/motion graphics, graphic design, photography, branding and ad campaigns for some of Australia's biggest brands. 

She is currently studying her Masters in Animation, Game Design and Interactivity at RMIT University and is excited to be exploring her love of storytelling, through combining her passion and skills from theatre and interactive or animated mediums. Outside classes, she enjoys helping out with the MAGI Expo and Co-Coordinating the MAGI 3D Club where she helps to organise regular catch ups, monthly drills, guest speakers and the club's new annual animation project and recently completed the IGDA Foundation Scholar program for 2021, through the Diverse Game Developer's Virtual Exchange program. 

Amber enjoys being involved within the community and was recently selected to be a part of the Women in Games Ambassador team for 2022. She continues to perform in her spare time, is addicted to film/game scores, enjoys playing the piano, games and adventuring out into the wilderness with camera in hand.
