Artist Interview: Meet Emily Brown

Humble and camera-shy, Emily Brown is not only an incredibly talented painter, but balances mothering three kids, caring for a blind dog and finding time to enjoy her own hobbies and interests. A multi-tasker extraordinaire, Emily fills her canvas’ with neutral undertones and pops of color- creating optimistic yet calming expressions. Graciously welcoming me into her home despite her insanely busy schedule, Emily and I sat down for a little Q/A session.







Q. What is inspiring you recently?

A. Approaching Spring- the weather getting warmer, spring colors and more daylight!

Q. Do you have any rituals to get in the mindset of art making?

A. I feel like my mind is always making art, but I definitely need my surroundings to be organized in order to really get my ideas out.

Q. What is your favorite thing about Charleston?

A. I am not sure I can pick just one thing. The history, the food, the beach, the art…in my mind Charleston is the perfect place.

Q. What do you like to do when you are not painting?

A. Cooking is one of my favorite things to do- alone or with my kids. Somehow we are always in the kitchen “creating” something. I also enjoy reading and yoga.
