about the artist

Emily Siek was born and raised in Decatur, Alabama. Throughout her childhood, Emily's family and teachers were incredibly encouraging and supportive of her creative pursuits. She went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in Georgia. She has lived in the Northeastern U.S. since 2011, spending most of this time in New York City as a designer and artist. 

While the majority of a typical work day is spent designing at an architecture firm, Emily's favorite hours are spent behind the easel with brush in hand. She captures the essence of her subjects in her signature style. The whimsical layers of acrylic color and glimpses of texture bring a heartfelt "soul" to her paintings. 

Having dedicated the past ten years to commissioned portraits of children, Emily has recently broadened her portfolio to include paintings of animals. Look for new paintings added to the "for sale" section!

"I hope my paintings can bring to my clients the same joy I experience while creating them. I am grateful for all who follow and support my art -- it is your encouragement that inspires me to grow as an artist."  -Emily
