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 after a car accident resulted in disability. She is always exploring new mediums and pushing her own artistic boundaries, with a certain affinity for acrylics, alcohol ink, and mixed media. Her expressive, intuitive style takes influences from nature, modern life, and 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 herself and turn it into ethereal, imaginative works that give the viewer a feeling of wonderment. She believes the key to life is finding one’s own magic.
Her work is available for purchase online and at various events and art shows. Check out the webshop and Etsy for direct sales and the Sisu Cat Studio Redbubble and Society6 shops for unique printed items!
