Growing up in rural North Carolina, Emily has always been a creative type as long as she can remember. At every level of her education, art was her favorite subject. Emily studied Fine Arts for a couple years at UNC-Greensboro before her career interests took her in a different direction, but not before she learned drawing, painting, design, and sculpture at the college level. She feels that art should be accessible to everyone and that everyone can create beautiful works with a little instruction - even if they're just picking up a brush for the first time. Emily describes herself as a total nerd and enjoys watching movies and playing video games. She looks forward to helping all her guests create awesome works of art they'll be proud to hang up at home.
