Emily Beeson — or “Bee” amongst friends — is an emerging artist who's passionate about shapes, color, pattern repetition, people and story. She's been doodling on the margins of notebooks, friends' denim jeans and paper cocktail napkins on airplanes for as long as she can remember (she once traded a flight attendant a doodled napkin for a free in-flight meal!) and is most inspired by time spent outdoors, in the wild — and almost equally by interactions with others.

The mantra that guides her art making practice, "You are already free," also motivates her in life, fueling and re-fueling her with courage to show up as her most authentic self in life and in her creative process. Emily creates both representational work and fluid "doodle-like" explorations of shapes and patterns that seek to express harmony, interconnectedness and rhythm in the composition. In producing the latter, she is led more by intuition than technical skill. 

Emily currently resides in Healdsburg, California where she is also engaged in flower farming & floral design work.
