I came across a new to me artist this week, named Emily Jeffords. Emily's landscape paintings focus on color and have a lyrical movement in their composition. Emily talks about visual poetry, which is a beautiful description, that I feel, resonates in her paintings. Some of her thoughts on the artistic process:
Much of my work is centered on the theme of finding peace and beauty, regardless of life's challenges. There is always grace and peace to be found, and hope shines brightest when life is most tumultuous.
Emily's website is perfectly curated and does a beautiful job of creating a unified theme for her art. I love all of the photographs of her paintings, studio and art making because it allows the viewer to get a sense of her aesthetic and who she is as an artist. One of my absolute favorite aspects of Emily's site is an incredible video by Traveling Storytellers of her creating and the process behind her work. I hope you enjoy! -Megan
