Amber Caspian
Amber Caspian  
I am inspired by folk and faery stories, dreams, nature, spirit, ancient landscapes and beautiful words, I write poems as part of my creative process.  My recent travels across flame-coloured deserts in North America and frozen lakes in Arctic Sweden also greatly influence my work.’  

Born in Folkestone, Kent and brought up in Thaxted, Amber Caspian studied Art in Bristol, worked in London for a number of years in bookselling and then marketing for Penguin Children’s Books. While there she indulged her passion for art, books and stories and amassed a considerable collection of wonderful children’s illustrated books.

Amber has loved witches and fairytales since early childhood, enchanted by the drawings and silhouettes of Arthur Rackham and Jan Pienkowski.  Later she turned creatively to this subject painting them in watercolour and ink. 

Amber now uses a variety of techniques to express herself; from figurative myth-based paintings and shamanic animal icons in oils, paper-cut silhouettes and collage, to bags for hand drums made from vintage fabric, buttons and embroidery.
