My name is Emmeline Barcomb, but I have always gone by Emmie. I am a local artist, born and raised in Sarasota, FL. I express myself in two very different and ways.
My abstract expressionism, I consider this a collaboration with nature, fueled by my human gift of emotion. Music guides the rhythm in how I throw the paint and gravity does the rest. During this process I release a tremendous amount of pent up emotions and transmute it into something beautiful and expressive.
My other expression is bringing life to photography. I hand paint acrylic, custom copies of photos in all different sizes. I see beauty everywhere in the world and I try to accentuate that view through my art. The world can feel dark and cold sometimes but it’s
beauty never disappears. The way we view life though can be altered allowing us to overlook it’s beauty. When I paint photographs, I get lost in the moment captured on camera, bringing that moment to life with my own magical touch. Through the good and the bad, my paintings are a reminder that beauty is
everywhere, you just have to look for it and you will find it. There are always silver linings.
I believe there are no mistakes in art and that we are each one tiny detail in the masterpiece that is The Universe.
Also, today is a great day to have a great day.
