ARTIST STATEMENT

Using painterly line and pattern alongside a diverse colour palette, Amber Stokie creates rich and provocative paintings that reflect her inner world and the broader human experience. Personal symbolic iconography often emerges in her paintings, enabling her to create playful and imaginative responses to life’s unpredictable nature, extending an invitation to experience a sense of optimism and wonder. Marked by an openness to revision and re-imagination, each series of work directly informs the next as Stokie embraces experimentation and stylistic diversion.
