Émilie Lemay


“I paint landscapes that represent both the earth and its emotional charge. My art practice is based on observing atmospheric abstractions between sky and earth.

Each painting begins with the experience and documentation of the landscape; hikes, sketches, plein air paintings and reference photographs are the first steps. I then complete my work in the studio or at live painting events. Multiple brushstrokes and washes in watercolor, acrylic paint or water-soluble oil paint create a rich depth of luminous color.

I am inspired by solar variations that reveal the colors of the earth; these natural elements reflect our memories of wild places, storms, light on the horizon, moments of grace and the passage of time. My work expresses a deep attachment to nature and the hope that our environment will have a sustainable future. I hope they can evoke the places you hold dear and the emotions you have experienced in the great outdoors.”
