I am a local Maryland-moved-to-Washington artist, writer, and a PhD student at the University of Washington in Seattle. I am the grand and great-grand daughter of Chesapeake Bay watermen, boat builders, and artists; my own art and poetry reflects the inspiration I finds among the local trees, skies, and waterways.
EmaBee was the nickname my grandfather gave me because I am always creating things like a busy bee.
I garden, write, read, cook, paint, sculpt, and build. I am always creating and thinking about the next thing to work on at what I call: my “Creation Station.” I am an activist, a promoter of non-violence, and a life-long craver of knowledge.
I like to take every day items and scenes and alter them to prompt a new way of thinking. I am always creating and observing the world around me for art in every day life.
I am on a urgent journey to find peace profound in all aspects of my life and in this world.
