Amber Linkey is a talented self-taught artist who has had numerous shows. After spending some time drawing realistic, traditional images, Linkey discovered the freedom of abstract expressionism. She discovered the joy of creating whatever she wanted to on the canvas. She wants her work to be an inspiration for those who see it — a reminder to be comfortable with vulnerability. Linkey says, “I think art and vulnerability need each other to exist, and I also think that those are two things that make humans-human. The ability to create and to aspire to more than survival is one intangible beauty about humans that I want to capture and use to connect people, or spark something in them.”
