ABOUT

Emelie Ericson is a Swedish native artist currently residing in Greenwich, CT. She has traveled all over the world having studied and lived in Gothenburg, London, Mallorca and New York City. Every adventure has been an inspiration which she strives to reflect in her art. Her style is simplistic with a modern alteration.

 

As a young child, she gained inspiration by watching both her grandmothers and her mother paint in oil and watercolor. It was with these mediums she started painting herself. After moving into a small, loft apartment in Soho, New York she switched over to acrylics. Those who know Emelie well might suggest that this medium better suits her personality, perhaps alluding to an impatient, “can't wait for the paint to dry” attitude.

 

After leaving New York City, she moved to Greenwich, Connecticut where she attended the Greenwich Art Society and was trained under Anna Patalano. Only after 3 months as a student, her featured work "Dog on Chair" was selected by a MoMA curator to be part of the Bendheim Gallery Exhibition for Modern Art. Other works, including "Winter" from her Swedish Landscape Collection were shortly thereafter selected by the curator from the Greenwich Arts Council to be featured in the gallery for its annual art event, Art To the Avenue.
