Artist Biography


It’s so nice to meet you! My name is Amber Renee — I’m a mother, wife, artist, designer, author, writer, blogger, crafter, cat hugger, motivational rainbow maker, kawaii inhaler, Tokyo-treader, internet sunshine-spreader living with my husband, 4 kids, cat and dog in a huge, old home in Indianapolis, Indiana and I’m endlessly inspired to try and find new things for us to go gaga over.

My past is dark and 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 that we share it. I’m always learning new ways to see the world and to enjoy life in a way I never dreamed of. If I can make it through and be happy, I want to inspire you to make it too. Happiness is a choice and a lifestyle that we have to choose for ourselves! Let’s choose to live in color together.

Official Artist Biography

Amber Renée Usagi 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 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.
