Ibu Jero Amer Ambari is one of the best Balinese Painter I have ever met.
At the first time meeting, I knew her as a chip seller who always comes to my office in Denpasar to sell her chips. She walks from Batubulan to Denpasar, which need approximately 2 hours walking:
She did it everyday just to sell snacks from door to door. She do it because she really need money to pay tuition fee for her daughter who is still studying in a highschool.
But, one day she came to my office with a beautiful painting on her hand. She said she needs more money to pay the debt for her daughter school. What is interesting is we never knew that she is a good painter. Well, you can judge, look at ther painting!
She said she prefer to do something and sell it rather than ask for donation. She want to work with her passion: paint something, but don’t know how to promote.
My manager was automatically interested to buy it. He also promote her painting in his Instagram, hoping somebody wants to buy a good painting from her. By the way, if you guys are in Bali and don’t know what to buy for unforgettable and unique souvenir please call her: +62 81 999 508 211
