Emily is an acclaimed portrait artist from Birmingham, Alabama. Her unique style brings subjects to life from a blank canvas using nothing but charcoal, her fingers and an eraser. With every portrait, Emily strives to lift out her subjects’ genuine personalities — creating a lasting heirloom that represents their true-to-life likeness and spirit.



A graduate of Auburn University with a degree in graphic design, Emily worked as a designer at a boutique advertising agency in Greenville, South Carolina, before moving back home to Alabama to fulfill her dream of becoming a full-time artist.



Emily currently resides in Homewood, Alabama, with her husband who runs a custom cabinet company and their three young daughters.
