about amber-rose hulme – pastel contemporary art

amber-rose hulme, pastel artistFrom a young age, Amber-rose’s artistic drive was inspired and encouraged by her mother. At the age of 4, she decided that her dream was to be an artist. Throughout high school, art became a refuge for Amber-rose, a calm in the midst of the chaos. Amber-rose was very proud to receive the top art prize in her final year of high school. Despite early success, she resolved to keep art as a hobby and diverged into the fascinating field of Genetics, completing a Bachelor of Science. Art was never very far from her mind though, and after completing her degree, Amber-rose found herself drawn once again by the creative pull.

Through a series of serendipitous moments, Amber-rose found herself the proud owner of a quiet little art studio in Hampton, Victoria. Promptly renaming it Blanc Canvas Studios, she turned it into a bustling small business, with classes highly sought after and places limited. Amber-rose’s role as Owner of Blanc Canvas Studios allowed her to immerse herself wholly in a Fine Art career, and she has not looked back.
