TEXTS:

Personal and private correspondence, congratulating Amber on the success of Amber-Lauren Fine Art - HRH The Prince of Wales August 2014

“Amber is clearly a talented Artist!” - Sir Richard Branson, March 2014

"Discovering a young talent is always exciting but I was stunned by the raw beauty of Amber-Lauren's work. I felt instinctively that I wanted to help promote her and her artworks and already have one of her huge canvases hanging at home. She deserves a wider audience and it seems that The Prince's Trust have already recognised that. She is surely an artist to watch." - Fiona Fullerton - celebrity author, art collector and former ‘Bond Girl’ actress - February 2014

“I don't think Amber needs to be the next anything. She'll be Amber Ballantyne-Styles and judging by the art she's produced now while still a teenager, she is damn good and will continue to get even better!” - James Skully, The Wallbreakers, New York, USA - April 2014
