ARTIST:                     Amber Lee Goetting, Chisago City

CHAIR NAME:          “The Vastness of the Universe”

Amber is originally from Omaha, Nebraska and has lived in Minnesota since 1999.   She became a resident of Chisago City in 2003.   Amber started taking formal classes in art in the eighth grade, and continued on through college.   She received an Associate of Arts degree in 2001.  Amber has been painting under the moniker of “Mass x Volume” over the past few years.   Her style of painting usually is extremely colorful, vibrant and expressive.  Some would say almost angry almost.  But over the  past few years, Amber has stepped out of her comfort zone and experimented with black and white in a very subdued and controlled fashion.
