About

Vibrant use of color and movement are often the first things observed in the art of Emily Forbes. Self-taught, Emily began using art in adulthood as a means of therapy to cope with disability. She is always exploring new mediums and pushing her own artistic boundaries, with a certain affinity for acrylics, alcohol ink, and mixed media. Their expressive, intuitive style takes influences from nature, modern life, and a healthy dose of curiosity. A native Minnesotan, Emily has a degree in Urban Studies and has always had a very analytical and creative mind. This allows her to quietly observe the world around themself and turn it into ethereal, imaginative works that give the viewer a feeling of wonderment. They believe the key to life is finding one’s own magic.
