Hello there!

I'M Emily


I love everything about it—especially making it.

I make bright, colorful art.

I make it to be beautiful, or cute, or both!

Some of my art tells stories, some doesn't. 

Some pieces are big and bold, some are small and sweet.

All of them feel good.

Each and every painting is a thing of joy that I create with great love, in a happy place, full of good energy. Those are my artistic requirements! And after over 40 years of making art, I've learned that art is a great way to communicate. Vibes of all kinds can be communicated through art. So I make sure you get only the good vibes here!!

Art is one of the ways I appreciate being alive in this world. What a magical world we have! I just love this place. And I love how I can create something with love and joy and then you can feel it in the art! Even simple art can stir big feelings. And that's what makes it special—both you and I get to feel it: art connects us through beauty.

So let's connect

 You deserve some fresh color! Take a look at my shop and see if you connect with anything. Browse the gallery page to see what this art looks like in other home spaces. You can even try out the augmented reality tool that lets you view the art in your own space. Feel the vibes! Then only buy what you love. If you want a specific size or material not shown here, just send me a message and I'll see what can be done. 

 And check out the merch! There is so much cute stuff! Thank you for supporting me as a living artist. 

It is an honor to create art and share it with you.



I am also a children's book author! I write and illustrate colorful, happy, and educational books for our next generation of budding minds! 

To learn more about my books, check out my books page.


Nature, songs, stories, feelings... all sorts of things inspire me! Animals being adorable inspire me. Humor inspires me. For my illustrations, teaching big ideas through cute little characters inspires me. For decorative art, color and beauty inspire me. I paint with purpose. And each piece has its own inspiration.

I come to the paper or canvas with an idea in mind. I do not stand in front of a blank slate for long. For abstract art, I may just have some colors I want to use or a mood I'm trying to convey. For illustrations, there's always a plan—and it's gotta be an inspiring one!

I really enjoy art in all its forms. Everything from theater and music, to pottery and woodwork, to gardens and architecture—the world and its people are capable of creating amazing beauty! I am inspired to be a part of that in any and every way I can.


Writing and illustrating children's books is my childhood dream come true. My two books, Joone (2013) and Drop (2021) are published by Dial Books of Penguin Random House and are currently making their way around the world. My book characters, Joone and Drop, are both represented here in my merch and illustration shops alongside some other cute little characters of mine, like Ray, Gentleman Bug, and Secret the Unicorn. 

Illustration is story-telling through art. With my books, I use pictures to say what the words cannot. And the pictures can say a lot! But most of my cute little characters come without complete stories. Their stories develop, and they may get their own books someday, but for now, I love that I can share them with you here. And there are always new little cuties coming!

Realism is where I started learning art, and illustrative work is the bulk of my art career, but abstract art is how I decorate my home. 

I really started appreciating abstract art when I was in my twenties, living in my first home alone. I wanted art that wasn't depicting a specific person or scene—just something beautiful that I could look at over and over. But making my own abstract art was not as easy as I expected: my first pieces were muddy messes!! I had to learn that abstract art isn't just randomly pushing paint around a canvas.

My abstract art has one purpose only: beauty. Some of it is simple, but beauty need not be complicated. I love how abstract art feels rather than speaks. It is an elegant way to create a mood with just shape and color.

 Check out my abstract art shop! Sometimes a little color is all you need.  ;)
