    Emily is a wonderful instructor, very knowledgeable about most mediums and fun to work with. She enjoys experimenting and drawing out the creative in me. Her studio is peaceful and inspiring-you always want to stay a little longer...

    I have been working with Emily for about 3 years. She’s incredibly talented and inspiring. Emily comes to my home for an hour and a half and we work on various paintings that I am interested in creating. She is knowledgeable about all of the mediums, tools and different techniques. I really love working with Emily-she has a very easy and spiritual way about her approach to art.


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

Depending on what the student is interested in learning or creating and what level they are at; I generally begin with conversation, maybe sharing some interesting images or videos of artists at work.

It is good to put a new student at ease in a quiet setting at first(maybe some music) basic mediums, perhaps a few sketches of still life objects or sketches from an image in book or photograph. If they are interested in abstract, I would have them begin with small squares on paper with colored pencils and then transfer to larger surface.

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

I have a BFA from Boston University and studied all elements of drawing, painting, printmaking and graphic design.

I have been a graphic designer and fine artist for 20+ years.

Teach privately and groups.
