Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, Emily lives near the beach and finds her inspiration from the beauty in nature and in people. Every plant, animal, and person is unique, and she seeks to capture the most beautiful parts of each in aspects of her paintings. An undying optimist, her art utilizes bright splashes of color that attract the eye and subject matters that bring a smile.
Graduating with a double degree in Art Education and Classical Civilizations from Loyola Marymount University in 2007, Emily spends her time painting and creating jewelry, serving at her church, Journey of Faith, spending time outside hiking or at the beach, and investing in her friendships. She can often be found riding her beach cruiser along the strand in Hermosa and Manhattan Beach.
