Thanks for stopping by-
I'm Emma, I was born and raised in Sonoma County California, and after a brief stint living in Marin for high school and a number of years after that, I am back. I never thought I was good enough for art when I was a kid if I wasn't "born with talent" I was too lazy to perfect any sort of craft. The exception of that was when I picked up my own film camera in the fourth grade and rarely put my camera down.
I started watercolors towards the end of 2016 when I was on the verge of a breakdown, nothing seemed to be going right in any aspect of my life. I took a leave of absence from my high-stress job at a huge corporation and did close to nothing for an entire month. I started watching art videos on YouTube to destress and one particular Youtuber I found made watercolors look SO EASY, I picked up several cheap sets of paints and I haven't stopped painting since.
In January 2017 I said "screw it" and started posting my paintings on Instagram every day... for the entire year. November 2017 is when I sold my first painting, and on August 31st, 2018 I will have my first ever art show. Thank you to everyone who has left a comment on any of my paintings in the past almost two years, thank you for encouraging me, buying my paintings and just being along for the ride.
