Hi, I'm Emily and I am a (mostly) self-taught watercolor artist. I say "mostly" because there was that one time in 2nd grade mom signed me up for a painting class and then a few years ago I adventured to Paris to eat crêpes and attend a watercolor workshop led by one of my favorite artists. I can't completely discredit those, right?
I am an ESL teacher, wife, and new mama to a precious baby girl. I love getting to call East Tennessee home and one of my favorite activities is to find a cozy corner in a coffee shop while listening to a good podcast and get lost painting.
Since I was a child, I have always loved art. I began drawing at a young age and only drew pencil portraits throughout high school and college, but it wasn't until my adult years that I began to explore painting. I find inspiration when I travel and experience new cultures or wake up to a cotton candy sunrise outside my window. I strive to create paintings that emulate light and softness.
