After obtaining a formal art education, Emile wasn’t quite sure where to head next. And so she embarked on a series of adventures, leading her to island living, tandem bike treks and motherhood. All of those experiences are represented in her artwork, from outdoorsy landscapes, sweet sayings and travel-related scenes. In addition to creating works of her own, she began teaching others to create their own art, in the form of calligraphy classes. The courses became overwhelmingly popular, and to make the craft accessible for those outside of Texas, she developed a starter kit for beginners. So in addition to enjoying Emile’s adventures in print, she makes it easy to snag the tools you need to share your own stories.
