Since 2010 Emilie has been teaching ceramics. She started a pottery co-op community in Colorado. Now in California she is starting one again. Creating a community of artists is sharing the art-journey — a journey to personal evolution through creativity.
She has studied art — not only in school but most everyday as well — painting the nude figure, painting in the style of Picasso and then Matisse and Van Gogh, drawing Celtic knots, sacred geometry, and every skill and technique possible in ceramics.
With a BS in Graphic Design and Masters in Business from California State University LA, like so many artists, she has lived an artists-life by splitting her attention between art-making and everything else.
She sculpts Kings and Queens from her dreams representing all of us as our exalted-selves. She sculpts green man in his many countenances — a being representing nature, growth and abundance. And just as often, she makes self-portraits, landscapes, cats and dragons, turtles and symbols from ancient cultures. Friends and art-lovers feel spirit within her work.
She’s raised two beautiful and creative daughters, who are now mother’s themselves — one an artist and the other a scientist. Emilie grew up and also raised them in Southern California, in LA County, but after she spent a couple of decades in Washington DC and Colorado, she’s back and lives again in California. She lives on a hill in Monrovia with her husband and her cat, surrounded by plants, wild life, and tons of ceramic sculpture.
