Ambrosia Sullivan was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1985 and grew up in Auburn, New York. She currently lives in Union City, New Jersey with her dog/assistant Ruby.
Her expansive art education includes receiving a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2007 from Pratt Institute. After graduating she continued her studies at at both F.I.T. and Prescott & Mackay in New York City with a focus on footwear design – a passion which has become her full time career.
Ambrosia spent eight years working at Guerra Paint & Pigment in the Lower East Side. The time she spent there was incredibly important for her as it helped her discover the characteristics of color. Learning to work with water based paint, created from mixing pigment concentrates and binders, was extremely significant in her development as an artist and her understanding of color. Her paintings are painted with Guerra paint to this day.
