Amber Knorr was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky. She studied Theology and Catechetics at Franciscan University of Steubenville before moving to Florence, Italy to pursue artistic training at the Sacred Art School. This figurative art school had a particular focus on St. Pope John Paul II's "Theology of the Body" along with training artists in the Catholic tradition of Sacred Art.
As an artist Amber is interested in exploration of the human figure and the Christian faith. She hopes that through her art she may "put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ."
