Amber Varney (Ambervarney)
I'm an 18 year old Graphic design student living in Brighton, England. I'm due to go to uni next year to study Graphics and I have just attained three A-levels at grade B in Photography, Psychology and Graphic design.
I started my Instagram account for my work a little over a year ago and since then I have started an Etsy page and a website selling my work to various customers around the world.
Myself and my friend have recently set up a fundraising/ charity organisation in Brighton which invites young creatives to paint and draw in various styles and with various mediums. One session had upwards of 20 participants, we observe social distancing of course. We then sell these pieces (one painting sold for £50!) and donate all proceeds go to local Brighton charity BMEYPP (black and minority ethnic young people's project).
I mostly work in digital but I have recently taken up painting and I do enjoy it very much. Most of my work tends to be more illustrative but I love the range that graphic design gives me and the many opportunities it brings.
I really would love to further my experience in the creative field by possibly doing a apprenticeship or internship before I start my degree in Sept 2021.
