Meet the Artist
Burrito Princess is fan art for the geek at heart, bringing old school video games to life while putting a retro twist on modern day pop culture characters. Burrito Princess was founded in 2012 by artist and crafter Amber Kantes in a small town in West Virginia. Amber is a chemist turned full time artist who created the crafting persona Burrito Princess when she decided to start selling a few of her creations online. One thing led to another, and soon after graduating college, she decided to sell her artwork and creations full time at comic cons, festivals, and online. While she dabbles in many different creative outlets, she mostly sticks to creating digital pixel art and crafting with what she likes to call "pixel beads." In the rare moments when she is not creating and crafting, she likes to cook, go to concerts, play video games, geocache, thrift shop, and read.
