Born 1991, Emily Persson is a Melbourne based artist who has been creating thickly textured impasto oil paintings for three years. Emily is a multi-generational artist and still uses the same palette knife as her great grandmother.
She is emerging as one of Australia’s premier palette knife artists, particularly specialising in landscapes and seascapes.
In July of 2019, Emily was invited to be a part of a gallery group exhibition in New York. Her works were received tremendously well and she was the only Australian amongst talented U.S and Russian artists in the show.
Emily’s art constantly trends worldwide on Instagram and has had her work featured in some of Australia’s finest lifestyle print magazines including House & Garden, Belle and Country Style.
