"After three years of living in a camper, painting the unwinding scenery of the United States and Canada I landed in the Triangle. Once settled in Durham I
worked as a freelance artist creating murals, portraits, illustrations, art instructor and fine artist. I’ve phased out most of the commissioned work to work full-time
as a fine artist.
Life-on-the-road developed my passion for painting landscapes. Through the paintings by moonlight I was discovered by a publisher. Since then, Beau Soleil
Press has published four art gift books of my work. Also, every year I write, design and make 50 copies
of an annual edition that follows my work, the 25-year Handmade Book series.
I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in painting and printmaking, but most of my art education was obtained in Europe and life in general." For more information about Emily and her work please visit her website:
