Amber Luning is a New Jersey based artist, designer, and educator. She received her BFA in Medical Illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2012. She then moved to New Orleans and spent three years pursuing freelance work and performing stand up comedy before rediscovering her passion for educational design and spatial construction and obtaining her MFA in Museum Exhibition Planning and Design in 2017 at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
I’ve always been fascinated by the world. From the time I started forming memories to now, I’ve always been that person who learned everything I could for the sheer joy of knowing something new. From physics to biology, chemistry to craft, history to psychology; my lust for knowledge is insatiable. It is only matched by my passion for teaching, sharing with my friends and total strangers the beauty and wonder of the universe. A spatial and kinesthetic learner by nature, I see the creation and display of media as a logical solution to the problem of teaching at a distance.
I take joy in innovation and discovering new ways to do things, often applying knowledge from craft and design areas to medical,museum, and informational art projects, and vice versa. My work for clients and for myself displays this trend, whether utilizing knowledge of computer modeling and chemistry in jewelry design, or knowledge of fabric, glass and dye in medical modeling. I take pride in being a jack of all trades, and believe that each skill I’ve absorbed and each field I have studied contributes to the personal style and scientific accuracy of my work.
