Amber Leilani is a self taught artist, born in the brambles somewhere in northwest Georgia.
Over the last twenty years she has worked as a jewelry designer, doll maker, and watercolorist.
Her Halloween and Day of the Dead dolls and dioramas are in private collections around the world.
After almost a decade as a sculptor Amber now devotes herself to painting full time.
She works primarily in acrylic and oil.
Amber hopes to bring her love of the magical and mystical to her paintings.
She is inspired by myths and folklore, nature, pattern, peeling paint, fairy tales, and the smell of old wood and old books.
Amber lives and works in New Orleans.
When she is queen she will outlaw leaf blowers.
