About the Owner

My name is Amber. I attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff where I earned a BFA in Visual Communication.

I currently live in Utah with my son. My greatest blessing is my family so most of my free time is spent with them. I am a faithful member of my church and apply those Christian values to every aspect of my life. I'm a lover of music, books, sunflowers and pumpkin spice.

Like the great firebird, the Phoenix, Simple Grace Studio was born from the ashes. After 7 years of loyal work, I suffered a layoff from a prominent stationery and printing company. After the initial grieving period, it was up to me to take action and rise from the ashes bigger and better than ever before...

My love for art and color began at a young age. Almost every gift was a coloring book, crayons, or one of those wooden art boxes. I spent my time reading, playing with dolls or coloring. It wasn't long before I went from just coloring those pages to drawing mini replications of them. Thus, becoming a self-taught artist. I never took a formal art class until my junior year of high school.

It was during the college application process that I knew I wanted to pursue art in some way but didn't want to be the "starving artist" so I thought I would take my artistic passion into the digital age with Graphic Design. It was then I decided to attend Northern Arizona University. I absolutely loved my time there but I think I learned the most while working as Creative Director for the student run newspaper, The Lumberjack. Managing a small staff, delegating tasks and performing press checks.

After graduation, I was hired on at an up and coming online stationery company where I absolutely fell in love with stationery and photo books, and helping others celebrate their life events. It was there my passion for typography, photos and preserving memories grew into what it is today. It was there I learned what stationery designs and other items sold best. I became an expert on wedding and general stationery grammar & etiquette.

From there we circle back to where the story began, the closing of one door and the opening of another. It is Simple Grace's mission to take design, illustration, art & photography and use it to help you have joy and celebrate life's many blessings one memory at a time!
