is 16 years old and from Connecticut. Creating art has been one of her biggest passions ever since she can remember. It has always been therapeutic and relaxing for her. Emily enjoys using multiple different techniques to create a variety of work. One of her favorite things in life is the beauty of nature, so a lot of her art is based on the world that is around her. She also loves to draw different faces that seem to come to life as she creates them. Emily has recently started working with clay and making ceramic pieces. She finds 3D ceramic pieces very interesting because you can physically and metaphorically feel the art. She feels that they provide an opportunity for the artist to truly bring the art to life. Making artwork of any kind has always been a way to express herself, document life, and sometimes even a way to distract herself from life.
