Amber Tutwiler is an emerging artist originally from South Florida. Her work is a meditation on interface; specifically, it is concerned with the interface between our physical, corporeal world and the heterotopic spaces arising from the world. Focusing on an interdisciplinary practice, she works across oil painting, sculpture and installation, audio, video, and performance.
She attended Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and received her MFA in Visual Art from Florida Atlantic University (2017). In 2018, she completed a residency at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. She has won various awards, including the Women in Visual Arts Scholarship, the Thesis and Dissertation Scholarship, and the Williamsburg Painting Award.
Tutwiler had her first solo exhibition in 2018, Interface, at the Fritz Gallery in West Palm Beach, and collaborated as Creative Designer with Lauren Carey of Ballet Florida in the immersive dance, Welcome.
For The Art of Sherlock Holmes project, Amber has created a stunning painting matching the Sherlockian storyline perfectly from 'An Affair Of The Heart', a story by author Mark Mower. Mark is a member of the Crime Writers’ Association, the Sherlock Holmes Society of London and the Solar Pons Society of London. He writes true crime stories and fictional mysteries. His first two volumes of Holmes pastiches were entitled A Farewell to Baker Street and Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Case-Files (both with MX Publishing) and, to date, he has contributed chapters to seven parts of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories. He has also had stories in two anthologies by Belanger Books: Holmes Away From Home: Adventures from the Great Hiatus – Volume II – 1893-1894 (2016) and Sherlock Holmes: Before Baker Street (2017). More are bound to follow.
The painting has been turned into an authenticated print for fans to buy from The Conan Doyle Estate.
