“Loggerhead Taxi Service” by Amber Moran

 

 

Amber Moran was born on a farm in central New York State and learned to love the outdoors and the value of hard work. She and her brother raised and sold flowers and pumpkins which helped pay their way through college. Amber was always drawing or painting trees and animals.  Her parents were talented artisans who always encouraged her art and after her first visit to an art gallery, Amber knew that art was her calling.  Amber received an Associates Degree in Computer and Art Design from SUNY Alfred State and earned a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art at the University of Buffalo and worked toward a Masters Degree in General Education at Elmira College.

 

 

Her love of watercolors came years later when she began painting again when her children were small.  She stopped trying to be so intricate and went with the flow and had fun.  This led her to thinking outside the box and using ink to add illustrations over the layered and textured water colors.  She is influenced by the tropical setting in Florida and combines watercolor and ink creating a unique and colorful take on the coastal lifestyle. 

 

 

 

 

Arti Gras 2017 Poster by Amber Moran

 

 

 

Amber and her husband and children moved to Martin County in 2004 and are very  involved in environmental causes.  She is a member of the Bullfish Foundation with their Lionfish Program and creates and donates art for the Lionfish Roundup each year.  She works with the Association of Environmental Professionals and with different Sports Fishing Tournaments who donate to specific organizations.  She also belongs to the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce and the Martin County Arts Council.  She has won many awards, is featured in local  magazines and shows her art work in many venues throughout Florida.

 

 

Amber tells The Rickie Report, “I’m in love with the vastness of the ocean, the mystery of the Florida canals and rivers and the peacefulness of the bush where the only sound is the palms blowing in the wind”.

 

 

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 37th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.
