  1. such energy! such sass! the second one down is fierce enough to inspire a young basquiat! Also, unique to the second one from the bottom, the small blue and black images in the bottom right corner seem to suggest that there is some interaction between those and the larger black image in the center. my first feeling was to identify this as a place of facing challenges. i LOVE how this part of the piece creates a strong focal point between the larger black image and the two small black and blue images. brilliant!



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.
