I’m Amber Renee Fawn, an indy-based artist, designer, and content creator,
that knows what it’s like to feel stuck.
Every time I’m asked to explain my style I’m at a big loss. Minimal and nostalgic with a bucket of retro, a heap of kitsch, a vat of kawaii, a large can of whimsical, and a truck load of psychedelic decadence? What does that even mean? So I prefer to say my style is Miseducated, or unconventional.
Another thing I’m often asked by new clients is if my own brand leaks into my design for them. That’s a hard no. My day job is designing corporate websites and marketing materials for surgeons, lawyers, skin care specialists, clothing brands, and more. I will only add a dash of me into your brand if that’s what you’re looking for. If you are looking for an edge, I will supply you with an edge that speaks to you.
On a personal note, I’m a “mama” and am spoiled with art by my contemporary realism painter husband, David H Cunningham, in a home from 1912 that sits in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. I love thrift shopping, zines, sugar, and brainstorming sessions. I’m endlessly inspired to try and find new things for us to go gaga over and my obsession with design knows no limits. I’m as comfortable escaping to my cabin in the forest as I am living in Tokyo. I prefer the city but I love to travel and experience it all.
My past was painful so I’m on a mission to show others another option. I continue 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 back then. My writing, artwork, and design are my obsessions and what I pour my soul into during my workday; my family and friends are what I pour it into every other moment. Whenever we work together you’ll know you and your projects are extremely valuable to me.
The most precious thing I’ve learned on my journey is that we don’t have to live in darkness;
we can choose to live in color.
