Meet the Artist
'Amber Nicole' Wade is a US Virgin Island artist, who has shared her artwork across the US and Caribbean. Amber is native born to the beautiful island of St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands, but is located in the Waynesville/ Saint Robert area in Missouri just outside of the Fort Leonard Wood Military Installation. She is also well known for her other business, Island Breeze Face & Body Art, where she services several areas in and around Missouri.
Amber has always been artistically skilled since her youth and is a self taught artist. She became more enthusiastic about painting throughout the pandemic, sharpening her skills and sharing her journey via Social Media. Amber is now known for her artistic style and work that is often described as bold and vibrant, heavily influenced by the beauty of both Caribbean and Afrocentric culture. Though most of her artwork is on canvas, Amber's pieces are known for their ability to captivate observers; to include the judges of the 2022 Tri-County Fair where her art (Majestic Reign) placed 1st, winning the competition.
Amber is a believer that art and other forms of creative expression are not just important to the artist and artistic creator, but are and have always been a necessity to the world. She believes that it captures the indescribable beauty, emotion, strength, fragility and resilience of life and shares the story through time. All this from the heart of the artist to the heart of humanity.
