Amber R. Engfer

I'm a California based artist working with the alternative photographic process known as cyanotype.  I was first introduced to cyanotype in college where I studied darkroom photography.  I attended school at San Diego City College, Humboldt State Cal Poly, Aegean Center for the Arts in Paros Greece , as well as Cabrillo College where I focused on advancing my knowledge in a variety of photograph techniques.  Now 20 years later and I still continue to include cyanotype in my artwork.  I'm lucky to live in my hometown of Santa Cruz where I have access to a variety of plants and seaweeds that I incorporate in my art.

When I'm not engaged in the arts, I spend time with my husband and two beautiful girls.  We love gardening, visiting with our animals and adventuring around our scenic forest and beach town.
