Film | Art Talk with Amber Countryman
We join artist, Amber Countryman, in a beautifully-personal deep dive into how art can act as a form of coping and healing. We take a look at some of the works that have been indelibly shaped by her life experiences, and see how her creative process lies in the expression of her emotions being woven into artistic stories. Amber Countryman is a Rockhampton-based artist who practices in a variety of art forms such as painting, sculpture and installations.
