Emily Farish’s drawings and paintings are currently being sought after by well known tech leaders, sports figures, and prominent designers. They are drawn to her unique approach of capturing an object so simple- a flower taped to a wall- and turning it into a dramatic work of art. The zen-like sensibility of each drawing prevails not only in the detailed renderings of each day-old flower, but in the carefully recorded tape, staples, scratch marks and imperfections of her studio wall. It is in these imperfections that the true beauty of the work is found.
The drawings are available at selected retailers on both the east and west coasts. Commissioned work is always prioritized and Emily will guide you to find the best size and image for any space. She has collaborated with designers and their clients for more than twenty years. Please contact Emily to inquire about available work and commissions.
