About the artist
Emily Magone, an artist from the beautiful and isolated Kootenai Valley in NW Montana, has recently returned from the UK to create from her new studio in San Antonio, Texas. She travels the world, seeking epic and everyday natural beauty. Self-taught and with her Irish grandmother’s early influence, Emily seeks to communicate the solace, calm and intensity felt when listening to the sounds the earth makes – without the interruption of man-made noise.
Emily has dabbled in many mediums, but her true love is acrylic. She thrives on discovering new surface materials and allowing the pigments and mediums to behave organically; letting the materials thrive to create a piece that has been brought to existence by the nature of its components working with her vision and memories. Through a mixture of wet into wet pigments, dry brushing and impasto, she creates work that emanates the constant soothing yet powerful energy of our natural world.
Emily has received multiple awards, and has had her work featured at the Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, Target and Minted as well as on several blogs including Arts Business Institute, Inner Moonlight Designs and Women in Art 278. Her work was also featured on DIY SOS: the big build on the BBC and lives in private collections all over the world.
Emily wishes to remind viewers of the connection that we all have to the earth and to all elements of the universe.
