Emily Beeson is an emerging artist who's passionate about painting, nature, people and story.
Born in Connecticut in 1987, she spent her formative years in New England but is also greatly influenced by summers spent on her Amish-Mennonite grandmother’s homestead in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania consistently as a child.
The mantra that guides her art, "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 art studio practice. 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 the San Francisco Bay Area and is a studio member at Art Explosion in the Mission District of San Francisco. She travels to Pennsylvania and Florida throughout the year to visit family and while in FL, attends painting classes at Longboat Key Center for the Arts.
