Emily is an outgoing, motivated and creative individual who enjoys all things vibrant and cheerful. Emily’s love for art started at an early age when she received an “art supply set” for Christmas. She blissfully went to work painting whatever her paintbrush could get ahold of. Once her paint supplies began to get low, Emily would sell bake goods to the local businesses and households to make money to re-stock her art supplies.
Since initially opening Emily’s Original Art in 2009, Emily’s passion for creativity has turned into a blossoming business. Emily’s Original Art allows her to use her creative talents, design concepts, marketing skills, and business expertise while creating art. Her client base has grown to include for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations, and private households, from all over the United States for whom she has designed artwork. Emily has donated several pieces of original artwork to non-profit organizations and mission-based charities around the country. Her artwork has been featured in Louisville Magazine (April 2011), Shop 280 magazine, and Shop Tuscaloosa magazine. She was also a guest speaker on ABC 33/40 “Talk of Alabama”, where she shared her story and showed the audience pieces of original art. In December 2012, Emily was introduced to Magnolia Lane Collections in Birmingham, Alabama. While creating “happy-original” artwork for businesses and loyal customers, Emily also designs a line of artwork produced by Magnolia Lane.
Each piece of her original artwork is painted on hand-built wooden canvases deigned by her grandfather. The style of Emily’s art is whimsical, eclectic, happy, and “one of a kind”! Within some of her paintings she uses different mediums, including: acrylic, spray paint, recycled materials, wire, mirror, low-voc polyurethane, etc.
“Painting is my happiness & you can never have too much happy”
