Daybrighten Art: Emily G.'s Watercolor

I am over the moon to be able to share this art with you because, well, it speaks for itself. Emily G. is an amazing artist and her watercolor work is indescribable. I took a Color and Design class at St. Edward's University with Emily in 2011, and it was obvious then how talented and passionate this girl was for making beautiful things.

Aside from being an inspiring artist, she is such a bubbly soul who makes it her mission to brighten everyone's day. Mission accomplished, to say the least. Emily is sharing her work with us today and a little story of how she found this art. She is in the process of opening her Etsy shop, and I will update everyone when it opens so you can get your hands on some of these gorgeous pieces!

"During my last year of high school, I started working with the Crayola watercolor sets that most kids use at some point in elementary school. There was something about the way the colors mixed together and were so bright, but still delicate and transparent. I was hooked on watercolor ever since that day.

As I finish up the last semester of college as a business student, it's safe for me to say that pursuing an art minor with a focus in watercolor has been one of the most valuable experiences of my college career. In a class schedule otherwise filled with strict deadlines and number crunching, watercolor painting has been a constant way to de-stress while still learning and being productive (which is a pretty awesome feeling.) The support I've gotten from my watercolor professor, my peers, and my friends as I've painted these past few years is incredible and I can't thank them enough. I can't imagine ever stopping, and am determined to make it part of my career in the near future.

My concentrated work consists mostly of natural landscapes and skies, but I also love creating small watercolor, doodles, posters, and greeting cards to brighten my friends' days."
