ABOUT THE

ARTIST

NICE TO MEET YOU,

                MY NAME IS EMBER DE BOER.

Ember de Boer is a multidisciplinary artist, founder, and creative strategist who is driven by a passion for sustainable and ethically critical art, employing a range of mediums, from traditional techniques to innovative technologies like light, sound, and industrial lasers. 

Derived from her Dutch ancestry, “de Boer” meaning “of the farm” or “of the land,” embodies a commitment to exploring environmental themes rooted in historical representation and identity. Her artistic practice revolves around the convergence of the human condition, environmentalism, and abstract experimentation. Through the accumulation of tactile layers and abstract forms, her work serves as a pathway to introspection; challenging conventional notions of identity through physical and conceptual deconstructionism. 

Based in Northern California, Ember actively champions community causes in Sacramento, through volunteerism and advocating for artists, tradesworkers, and small businesses alike. Her studio serves as a learning center and creative oasis focused on developing community sustainability and resources. Over the past decade, Ember has honed her craft, enriching her studio practice while acquiring fabrication skills in blue-collar warehouses. She is an alumna of CSU-Sacramento, Johnson County Community College, and the Kansas City Art Institute, where she cultivated her artistic prowess. 

Resident Artist at City of Sacramento on the Community Engagement Team; and Project Director for a local Neighborhood Learning Center focused on sustainability, training, workforce development, and neurodivergent learning.

        Feel free to reach out and ask questions, inquire about the work or my inspiration, or connect with me over any opportunities. 

BFA in Studio Art Sculpture – Minor in Philosophy – Minor in Studio Painting Kansas City Art Institute, Johnson County Community College, and CSU-Sacramento.
