About this pro

Hello my name Emmett Graham, I am based out of Phoenix, AZ. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Painting degree from Arizona State University. I also have additional training from Scottsdale Artist's School.  I am able to provide a strong skill foundation and knowledge that will enhance your skill level and creativity and for you to be able to communicate to others without words.


I have always been fascinated with creativity and artistic design. My interest in the arts is strong.  The reason I enjoy what I do, is that art provides many different things to an individual, from education to therapy. Art is able to express feelings and provide communication without words.  Art allows for an Idea, a story, or a time period in history to be told and expressed, to bring forth an  exchange of ideas or a conversation with someone you have just met.  All of this is why I enjoy the work I do.   

When Emmett Graham's time in Marine Corps was over, he found his passion for art and creativity once again.  He uses his time in the military, his travels around the world and experiences as a huge part of his thought process and creativity for his art pieces. His experiences have taught him that learning is a life long process and we must be students at all times. He continues to hone his craft and is honored to bring forth strong images - and his creativity onto the canvas.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

The advice I would give is to be realistic about what it is you want to learn, how many classes you want to take and are you looking to do art as hobby or is it something you seriously want to get involved in. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

The questions they should think through is, how serious are they about art.  Is what they want to do in art a hobby or is it something they want to be seriously involved in.  They need to be realistic in what they want to learn, what is their skill level and far do they want to go.
