by EMILY WEISS
Emily graduated from Skidmore College in 2008 with a major in Art History and Studio Art.
While she went on to pursue working in the arts in a more corporate environment as a Fine Art Insurance Broker at DeWitt Stern, she still tries to find time to paint. Emily has participated in a few NYC-based exhibitions featuring emerging artists.
Emily’s first love is painting portraits, as she feels very connected to the subject matter and portraying a certain personality. She did her first landscape when a friend commissioned her in 2010, and has been hooked ever since. Emily loves playing around with exaggerated colors and dripping thin layers of paint.
