Emily’s artistic statement: My artistic inspiration comes from nature’s ability to affect the spirit. The beauty, drama, and diversity of the lands of New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy region move me to capture my feelings and sensations in paint. When hiking, I am highly sensitive to the shifting of light, interaction of colours, arrangement of shapes, and variety of textures, particularly as these elements relate to the architecture of the forest. I continue to experiment with new ways to represent this depth of experience as my artistic practice evolves, manipulating style, media and other art and design elements. Through my paintings, I aim to evoke in my audiences the same attachments I feel to these places, along with an appreciation for their intrinsic value.
