LOS ANGELES, CA.-
Amber Goldhammer lives by four words of advice: Paint like a child. Though simple, these words have guided Goldhammer to an incredibly high-profile level of success in the art world, serving as a foundation for her work and her life.
Goldhammer was born with a highly attuned artistic talent. Her artistic journey began in the performing arts, studying choreography, ballet, and gymnastics. Goldhammer even became a state gymnastics champion, but after injuries left her unable to compete anymore, she turned her attention to another medium. After injuries took me away from gymnastics, I would spend weekends with my grandmother painting, drawing, making jewelry, doing photo shoots, sewing, performing, anything creative, reminisced Goldhammer.
All of her experiences with art at such a young age led Goldhammer to realize she was destined to pursue a career as a creative. However, it wasnt until she moved to Los Angeles and began a job at MAC Cosmetics when she realized that art was her professional calling. Working at MAC allowed Goldhammer to further explore her artistic abilities, and later springboarded her into her current career as a renowned artist. She found an immense amount of happiness in helping other women feel beautiful through doing their makeup, and this happiness ultimately inspired her to pursue bigger canvases.
After realizing her ultimate goal, Goldhammer got in touch with Rassouli, an artist most known for the unique Fusion-Art. Rassouli became her mentor, and Goldhammer began accompanying him on monthly painting retreats for the next several years. All of this time spent on retreats helped her to develop a sense of composition, color and balance. Her next step was simple: begin sharing her art with the world. "When I felt that I really had something special to share, I began knocking on gallery doors, said Goldhammer.
From her early days with her grandmother to doing makeup at the MAC counter, Goldhammer has had quite the journey. She is now regarded as a highly accomplished artist, with her art being featured everywhere from runways to hotels to TV series. Many of her works aim to paint the message of love and hope to the world. "In more subliminal works, I write hidden messages of love, but my ultimate goal is to have the viewer feel a sense of happiness," explained Goldhammer. Her unique and vibrant color palettes and heart-warming messages have become trends in the art world, but they will never go out of style.
Goldhammers journey is just getting started, and there is so much to come for her in 2021. She recently collaborated with fashion designer Isabel Marant on a Spring/Summer runway collection, with planning currently underway for an exclusive Beverly Hills event to showcase it. Further, Goldhammer put together a three-piece installation at Aurora Capital Private Equity Firm in Brentwood. One of Manhattan Beachs newest restaurants, JOEY Restaurant, will also feature one of Goldhammers most recent works this month. In April, Merritt Gallery and Renaissance Fine Arts, two east coast galleries, will show one of her collections.
She has found incredible success already, and it is clear that the sky's the limit for Goldhammer.
