Amber Leach Rice was born in Madison, GA and moved to Lagrange, GA at the age of 11. Rice graduated from Troup High School and received her B.A. from the University of West Georgia. Rice currently lives in the southern suburbs of Atlanta, with her young son Tucker and Fiancé John Stidham, working as a graphic designer and studio artist at her company SIKADA.
Rice enjoys producing commissioned work, saying, "It is a nice break from the many challenges that arise for a freelance graphic designer." Rice holds sacred the time she gets to produce her own creations. Whether they be paintings that capture the personality of a beloved pet, mixed media pieces, or conceptual bodies of work, art has always been the hunger and driving force that pulls her along.
