Howling winds today heard throughout the lofts at Knowlton St. Watercolor series of a dilapidated chair found in the space. Smoke stacks mimicking those that form the skyline of one of the most industrious in our country at one point.

Made a trip to the studio lofts yesterday on Knowlton St. Signs of spring were in the air. Created a few new pieces that I am in the process of posting. Met some of my studio mates and am starting to nestle into the space little by little.


Emily is prolific in her work and strives to achieve balance in what she creates. Color is a driving force: the use of contrasting colors, unconventional color combinations, and monochromatic themes are evident. Her approach to composition immerses the viewer in an environment containing both rhythm and movement that leads the viewer’s eye around the painting. She also accomplishes this by focusing on the details of the individual strokes. Her work is conceptual, relating movement, definition of space and different perspectives. Her creative process is additive; it progresses intuitively from a basic infrastructure, adding layers that are both deliberate and pronounced. The materials she uses are canvas, oils, paint mediums, and acrylic. With all these things encompassed, a sense of balance is achieved and her rate of production continues within this discipline of work. Although she works from an intuitive place, where she allows her inner spirit to come through, her explorations of manipulating oil paint are evoked through her deliberate approach to applying paint.
