Emily Mitchell's work is a vibrant celebration of nature, relationships and narratives. Through the development of many layers of paint and marks on the canvas, she weaves a story. Her works are done in acrylics, but she also creates smaller monoprints, watercolors, and collages. Mitchell received her Masters of Art Education from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, with strong influences from Peter London and John Crowe who impressed upon her the importance of letting go of what art is “supposed to be” and allowing play within the art making moment to steer creative discovery. Emily completed her undergraduate degree in Studio Art, Art History and Theatre at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts, where she graduated magna cum laude in 1994. Mitchell has had numerous solo exhibitions in New England and is included in several galleries around the country. Her work has been reviewed in Art and Art Deadlines, where she was featured as “Artist of the Year” in 2015.
