Amber Solberg


With an eye for the odd, Amber Solberg works as an illustrator and art instructor. Hailing from Alberta, she headed east to the ocean and now lives and works in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Since receiving a Visual Arts Diploma from Red Deer College (2009) and an Interdisciplinary BFA from NSCAD University (2013), she's been finding that science, storytelling, watercolours, and humour are her jam (although not what she'd want on toast).

Amber's been working with NSCAD Extended Studies since 2012, creating courses that teach children, teens, and adults how to cultivate and hone drawing skills as it encourages the individual to look more closely at the world. In 2015 she went on a year-long travelling adventure across Europe, teaching workshops and meeting new art communities. With what she's gleaned, she's currently working on graphic novel stories.
