Academic Philosophy:
Having started her research into the Discworld books at an early age, Amber decided to take her studies to a further level in 2008 when she attended her first convention. Since then she has dedicated much of her time to the furthering of the Discworld community by submitting many of her pieces of artwork to the charity auctions (mainly her well-known cute dragons), co-creating projects such as the Discworld Werewolf card deck from the 2013 Irish Convention, and now producing artwork for this and the previous Irish Discworld Convention too. Meanwhile, she has also produced the artwork for the recent ‘Clacks’ board game. Her talent for truly painful punning has not improved in this time.
