About the Artist
Amber Lavinia is an emerging artist, poet and designer, with human rights activism at the heart of her creations. Amber was born in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and now lives between Paris, Florence and London.
Her works have been described as energetic, briming with emotion and empathy, with a range of markings which have come to define her style.
Amber's first exhibition 'Roses' was launched to critical acclaim at Galerie 3F in Paris and these works are now being widely exhibited throughout the UK, France and Italy.
Prior to pursuing a creative career full time Amber qualified as a Barrister-at-Law, as a Sir Thomas More and Hardwicke Scholar of Lincoln's Inn, and worked in the UK Civil Service. During this time Amber spent many years working on human rights policy, diplomacy and international standards, and in particular on anti-modern slavery policy and the support for survivors of human trafficking in the UK. These experiences, along with her observation of the treatment of the vulnerable in society in general forms a clear basis for the motifs present in her work.
Amber is currently working on her second solo exhibition, 'Coercive Control' and studying at Charles Cecil Studios. Amber's first womenswear collection for her company Aurae and first collection of poetry will be launched this Spring.
