joy in layers
"My mixed media celebrates water - the very essence of our beings - to refresh your senses and to rediscover the joy water plays in your life: from splashing water to the beauty of dew drops on a flower’s petals."
Emily’s primary inspiration is water: oceans, rivers, rain and even dewdrops on flowers. Her unusual combinations of media and bold use of color refresh the senses. She is especially known for her dynamic ‘resin splash’ technique and her unique mixed-media wall sculptures.
Before following her passion for art, Emily had a career in graphic design and publishing. She is an award-winning author, publisher and graphic designer for a children's ongoing book series commissioned by the world-renown resort, The Phoenician. When she took the leap to parlay her creativity to mixed media, she finally found her perfect medium. Today, her artwork is sought after by collectors, art consultants, and commercial and residential institutions. Her work has recently been featured in magazines, such as: So Scottsdale, Modern Luxury Interiors Scottsdale, IMAGES AZ, and Private Air Luxury Homes.
Born in Greenwich, Connecticut, Emily has lived in NYC, London, Hamburg and Frankfurt and is now settled near family in Scottsdale, Arizona with her husband and their three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. They vacation often in Carmel-by-the-Sea, a significant inspiration for Emily’s art. Emily is a member of the Sonoran Arts League, has an advanced degree in photography and a Bachelor of Arts from Hamilton College, NY.
