Paintings from a rainy day.


  1. Wow Emily! I like the composition of the yellow painting a lot. There's a great balance of the white, black, gray, and yellow. Keep them going! It's good progress from the monochromatic paintings. What do you think about them?

  2. Thankyou Kerrie! I feel as tho I have grown a great deal not only as a person but as a painter in the past month or so. My line work is way more confident and the concepts are way more concrete. My plan is to buy another roll of raw canvas and continue gessoing myself. I enjoy the process very much.



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.
