Amber Van Ma’iingan grew up in Niverville, Manitoba and has been an artist since she was a child. While in elementary and junior high school she took some private art lessons which were foundational to developing her talent, but as an adult artist she is largely self taught. Though most of her artwork has been pencil, charcoal, and pencil crayon portraits and pictures she recently decided to give acrylic painting a whirl. Frugal by nature, she started out with paints, brushes, and canvases from her favorite store, the Dollarama, to make sure that she would enjoy it and be good at it first. When her first few paintings turned out better than she expected, she decided to upgrade her supplies and take her painting to the next level. She currently has a fascination with painting birds, a subject matter that is probably the result of being just like her mother. Amber has had a dream to start her own business for 10 years and after several ideas that didn’t pan out she is thrilled, nervous and little bit scared to have come this far with Painting on the Prairies. She studied Business Administration at Red River College after getting married in 2008 with the purpose of gaining the knowledge she would need to be a small business owner. It is Amber’s passion to have a business that caters to small towns in rural Manitoba (especially her home town, Niverville) to provide them with a fun entertainment option so that rural folks don’t always have to drive into Winnipeg to have a night out. Blending her passion for hosting social gatherings and her passion for art, Painting on the Prairies was born in June 2015. She hopes that rural Manitoba will go as crazy over paint parties as its urban neighbours have already and make Painting on the Prairies a local business success! Amber can’t wait to paint with you!
