Amber Creswell Bell is an art curator, an author of books on the arts, a lifestyle writer, a speaker, and an enthusiastic creative hustler.

With a passion for art, Amber champions emerging and unrepresented artists and ceramicists, curating popular exhibitions both independently and in collaboration with well-established commercial galleries. She is currently the Creative Director of Michael Reid Northern Beaches, curating both the emerging art and ceramics programs. Behind the scenes, Amber helps creatives to distil their messages, form their words and provides a robust platform for artists to promote their work to a broad and engaged audience.

Her first book, Clay, published by Thames & Hudson, released October 2016, showcases over 50 contemporary ceramic artisans from Australia and abroad.

Amber’s second book, A Painted Landscape, released in October 2018, profiles the diverse work of 50 of Australia’s landscape painters.

2021 will see the release of Amber’s monograph on artist Ken Done, and ‘Still Life’ – a compilation of Australian still life painters, also published by Thames & Hudson.

Her editorial work has been published in many of Australia’s leading titles.
