Upcoming Classes: Emily Reese
From a young age, Emily was labeled as “the artist” - always busy drawing horses or other animals, coloring, or drawing outside with chalk. In high school, Emily discovered a love for new mediums, namely graphite, acrylic, and oil, leading her to pursue a Bachelor in Art through UC Santa Cruz. Her work is relatable in narrative and subject, realistic in depiction, but with a painterly flair and sometimes an uncanny twist. She appreciates that painting is subjective and the “meaning” behind her work changes with her. For her own creative series, Emily enjoys working on a larger-than-life scale, with vibrant tones contrasted against dark and moody areas.
Emily has discovered that she is able to produce her best work surrounded with other like-minded peers. She contributed her artistry to several collaboration pieces with an electric guitar maker, has worked on murals with fellow artists, continues to design posters, signs, and chalkboards for a variety of peoples and businesses, creates unique commission paintings or drawings as a freelance artist, and tries to lend an artful eye where ever may be needed. Emily is excited to teach at The Painted Cork!
