ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Emily Passman is a painter of oils and acrylics, known for her expressive, loose style. She works from observation, both in the studio and plein air, and describes her work as 'a reaction to’ the subject, as opposed to a ‘rendering’.  In addition to teaching oil and acrylic techniques, she encourages and teaches students to sketch.

 

"Daily sketching is a great way to heighten one's ability to see, and important to incorporate into one’s painting process."

 

Emily's work is in galleries in New England and private collections internationally.  

 

After earning both a fine arts degree and a Master’s in Education, she had a successful career as an educator and graphic designer. She teaches privately in her barn-studio, a California studio during winter months, and at various educational venues near Boston.
