Visual art is the midlife storytelling surprise.

Artist focused on the highly abstracted & color-drenched 

With no experience or training, Emily unexpectedly took up making art in 2016 at age 37, and has since sold more than 150 paintings. Emily favors highly abstracted, color-drenched works centered around her core interests: Story, home, animals and the environment, justice, mystery, wildness.

Emily is an emerging artist working in oil, acrylic, watercolor, ink and paper collage.
