Amber Dawn Tutwiler
MFA in Visual Art (2017)
Florida Atlantic University


Tutwiler, originally from South Florida (b. 1988), is a hybrid maker who works across oil painting, sculpture, audio, video, and installation. While her practice is heavily reliant on oil painting and 2D media, her work reflects an interest in space that prioritizes viewer experience. 

Currently, Tutwiler is an artist in residence at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is also an adjunct instructor of sculpture at Florida Atlantic University.
