What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Amber Rock

At, we work with artists and photographers from across the United States and Canada. We're inspired everyday by the images that they send to us and by the stories they share.
In our "What, How & Why" interview series, we take a closer look at some of these fascinating people.

We've asked each participating artist or photographer three simple questions:

1. What do you do?
2. How do you do it?
3. Why do you use

Please read on to find out more about Amber Rock.

What do you do?
I am a sketch artist, using various mediums of pencils, and shading. I have painted some, but I find that my talent is best in pencil. I often do pictures of family, friends, hands, but most often people ask a drawing of a deceased loved one.

How do you do it?
I ask for a good quality photo to be sent to my phone, and from my phone (iphone 6 plus), I sketch the image. There are several graphite artists out there, and everyone has their own technique. The best way I can explain it, and I say this to my kids.... "draw it exactly how it looks, not the way you see it". I know that may not make sense, but that's the best way I can explain it.

Why do you use

I have used several printers over the years. One of which was a small print shop that I worked for at one time. I usually would have them scan it in to get a good digital copy, and save it on my thumb drive. Printing copies was hard, as no one could get a copy just right from a pencil drawing. I did a lot of research on the web trying to find a great resource for reproducing art pieces, and I came across iPrintfromHome. I was thrilled when I received my first order. It's exactly like my originals, paper is good quality, and pricing is reasonable.
