Inspired by Divisionism and Pointillism, Emma's Abstracture style combines bold colorful strokes with geometric placement using a wet-on-wet technique. She sometimes combines this with her first passion of Figurative art, invoking themes of self esteem, vulnerability, and acceptance. These works explore the idea of feeling allowed to take up space and to believe in our worth.
A self-taught artist, Emma creates her encouraging art in her Chicago home studio. She has hosted three solo shows, curated two group shows, and her work has been shared in a number of exhibitions. Her collectors range from local Chicago to global South Korea, and clients include Prada, the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, and the Gatsby Speakeasy.
"My style explores the idea of feeling allowed to take up space. So often we are told that what speaks to our soul isn’t welcome. Here, I welcome you. I encourage you to be your rich, colorful, dynamic self, meant to be developed but not restrained. I wish to encourage you to feel uninhibited when you pursue what you enjoy. To be passionate about being passionate."
