Meet The Artist: Amber Jean
“Audacious” is the word Joe Godla of the Frick Museum in New York used to describe my work, which is also a rather accurate description of my personality. Selected by WOOD magazine for their short list of “America’s Woodworking Greats” my relationship with wood and life is a venture of passionate intensely inspired exploration. I live a storied life – fueled by adventure both inside and outside the studio. My commute to work is a walk from my cabin through the woods to my studio at the end of the road near the top of a mountain in Montana.
About Amber Jean’s Work
I have experienced spiritual epiphanies in nature-made cathedrals while adventuring and living in the mountains. Moments of soul-bearing insight have come to me bereft of pomp…totally unexpected. I want to share those heart-split-wide-open moments and bring a bit of Mother Nature’s grandeur and grace to people. Trees inspire me. They have innate spirituality and unique personalities that reflect life’s twists and turns. Life is punctuated by tragedy and grace. My creative process embraces the raw dark murky places while offering a spark or glimpse at the “bright light” moments. The latest reliquary series, “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden” was created in the aftermath of my father’s death from cancer. I open myself just as I open the trees. The sculptures are born from subconscious and conscious vision, stories, emotions and imagery but live beyond my own experience. My intention is to honor the fortuitous spirit of trees and people as I continue to explore the notion of relics and reliquaries. The result is art with a strong healing component.
