Large panoramic paintings to small, enclosed charcoal and pencil drawings make up the current boundaries of Emily’s work. Paint lays in shapes and lines relying on traditional drawing methods to find and hold natural form and space. Within this parameter of paint and pencil you will see figures, often animals, interacting with and ignoring each other, while cognizant of the viewer’s presence.
As a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Art at Rochester Institute of Technology, Emily specializes in teaching foundations drawing and upper level undergrad and graduate painting. She received a BFA from the State University of New York at Potsdam and a MFA degree in painting from Kansas State University. In the last four years, Emily’s work has shown in juried and solo exhibitions in New York, Maryland, Kansas, Arkansas, Iowa, Oklahoma and Illinois.
