About this pro

Having painted for some 15 years I have maintained a deep passion for painting that I believe to be tremendously infectious for any beginning painter. 
    I am currently represented by The Treadwell Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts. 

I enjoy traveling to clients and teaching in an intimate one on one setting. I love to paint daily, share my experiences and above all teach.

    Emily is an outstanding teacher who knows her stuff! I’m a nervous novice and after only 2 sessions with her, I’ve drawn a charcoal piece and painted a beautiful oil painting. My husband arrived home from a trip and thought I bought both pieces. Emily is just great. She’s super easy to be with and to relate to. She’s so inspiring and encouraging. My anxiety is no longer there and I’m looking forward to doing my next piece tomorrow. I’ve found a slice of joy!!! She’ll be in my life for life.

    She made my first session very approachable after not having a lesson for over 40 years. The hardest part is starting. I am very excited and looking forward to my next lesson.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

To begin the process I like to develop a personal understanding of my student and their creative interests. This understanding is developed through our initial session that will take place wherever the student is most comfortable. Any past painting experience or skills will be discussed to develop a personalized lesson plan. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a CASA (center of advanced studies and art) graduate with roughly 15 years of independent fine art experience.
