July Display Artist
Nature surrounds us on the daily and Emily finds herself mesmerized by it. She's come to find
that when she looks to nature for inspiration in art making, the art speaks volumes. Looking
into the finer details of the structures of an organism, and understanding how they
come together to form a functioning creature or plant is fascinating. In studying natural
science illustration, Emily's art has taken on more detail, while remaining true to what she
want to show the world.
Emily's current projects revolve around her Natural Science Illustration certificate program.
She's been studying and illustrating wildlife and plant life. These paintings and drawings
are highly detailed and aim to capture the subject as closely to life as possible, while
still maintaining the individuality of her own style.
Works outside of the certificate program are mainly oil paintings. Often these have a
surrealistic quality, and are highly dynamic and expressive. Emily always aims to include personal
details in her works, so that they hold a special importance. She hopes that
adding personal touches will help the viewer engage more fully with her artwork.
