Art Making Style and Methods
The art-making that has created Emily's aesthetic for most of her 17 years as a self-proclaimed painter is akin to a flow state, but with awareness rooted in spontaneous expressions often followed up by imaginative meditations. She describes this process as an engagement in wonder, opening up the mind to discover images that appear right before her eyes. Through a mindset of curiosity and experimentation, she allows herself an ability to access deeper questions, rhythmic embodiments, and a passion for discovery of new beings of creative force.
