About Us

Amber Renee

Founder • Brand & Web Development • Heart Stylist

I’m a blogger, cat hugger, Tokyo-treader, internet sunshine-spreader and digital marketing maven. I have four lovely children and am spoiled with art by my contemporary realism painter, art professor husband, in a home from 1912 that sits in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. I love thrift shopping, confetti and entertaining guests with tea and lavender lemonade. I’m endlessly inspired to try and find new things for us to go gaga over and my obsession with creating, marketing, and design knows no limits.

My past was painful so I’m on a mission to collage my future with love and adoration for the beautiful world we share and the many different people and ideas that we share it with. I’m always learning new ways to see the world and to enjoy life in a way I never dreamed of. My personal artwork and client work are my obsessions and what I pour my soul into during my work day; when we work together you’ll know you and your projects are extremely valuable to me.

The most valuable thing I’ve learned join my journey is that we don’t have to live in darkness, we can choose to live in color together and embrace the light.

Official Artist Biography

Amber Renée has both studied and practiced art and design in the United States, France and Japan. She graduated with a BFA in Visual Communications from Franklin College and furthered her education continuing to study Visual Communications in graduate school at Herron School of Art and Design.

Her personal artwork can best be described as a colorful, psychedelic interpretation of the world around us. Perspective is bent and reality is altered with use of whimsical and mysteriously attractive imagery. POP art, innovation and decadent design come alive before your eyes in every project she takes on. Her work is inspired by the place one’s mind might go if they shut their eyes and hop through the mirror.

If there are two things I’m known for it’s, 1. for my chocolate addiction; I always bringing the chocolate to the party, and 2. for always having been in the top of my class.

When I was a kid I always thought I would be a doctor but things took a different turn when I decided I would go to a university to study business administration. In the final stretch of my career I completely fell in love with online marketing and supporting companies in being their best self and achieving their goals and dreams. I find we must always be open to the path we are best suited for, the path that shows us our success is right in front of us if we only take the reigns.

I created this blog so that I can share amazing art, inspirations and designs that can be found everywhere today and embrace my slight, color-charged, whimsical and design-hungry insanity in a very public way. There is an abundance of inspiring people and places around the world to open our eyes to and a creative, aesthetically attractive life to embrace so we can live inspired and love our brand.

The History of Miseducated

Miseducated began in 1997 as a personal website by myself {then known as Cat*e; this is also the year I got kitten Hobbes and met my girl soulmate Kimikat ♥} covered in rainbows, candy and moon cats. In April of 2001 I bought the domain www.miseducated.net and proceeded to move my personal website there. In November of 2008 I finally updated and published some old articles I’d written and Miseducated was reborn as the whimsical blog and lifestyle brand you see today. In 2010, after much regret of not choosing to buy the .com {I seriously thought .net sounded better at the time} and many years of waiting, www.miseducated.com went up for auction and I was finally able to snag it at a fair price.

    1990s Miseducated

    The absolute beginning (click!) of my web and graphic design career. (Hahaha.) I’m finally showing you this because I want to show you that each and every person has to start somewhere and learn and grow — no one just rolls out of bed with the knowledge and talent they need to succeed in their desired field. Back then all of my graphics were either scanned Sanrio and Sailor Moon collectables or created first in MS Paint and then finally in Paint Shop Pro. The delicious marshmallow rainbow palette is by Kimikat of course. FYI, the non-smooth text makes me gag as well.
