Amber Lavalley is a young and talented emerging artist from Rochester, NH. She graduated from Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA, with a BFA in painting in 2004. After spending two years in Boston, working in a contemporary American craft gallery, Amber returned to Rochester to focus on her art.
Amber’s unique and captivating artwork has been showcased at Market 100 in Portsmouth NH and Artstream in Rochester, NH. In 2008, she won the Portsmouth Herald’s Spotlight Award in visual art, solidifying her reputation as an artist to watch.
Her one-of-a-kind pen illustrations feature portraits of women with imaginative details. Amber’s original style is reflected in the unique jewelry embellishments, faces, and hairstyles that she incorporates into her drawings. With the confidence expected from the pen and the capriciousness of a female artist, her portraits combine sensuality with a linear narrative, creating playful and original works of art.
