Emma Ortiz is an artist based in Miami, Florida. She is interested in using oil paint as the tool to share the way she sees objects from nature and imagination as an ever-growing bank of imagery she references in her work.
Bachelor of Fine Arts, Illustration, 2019 – Parsons School of Design
In the warmth of natural light, Emma treats each painting like diary entry, focusing around the relationship between intuition, creating shapes and mixing color. These steps in making work have become methods in which she depicts moods from within and from the world around her. Both self portraits and narratives, the pieces tell stories of balance, inner peace and trusting yourself.
