Today’s Artsy Fartsy artist is Emma Kaufmann. Emma is a member of BlogPaws too, that’s how she found me. Emma does really cute and colorful pet portraits. Working with pastels, and watercolors she creates some wonderful pieces.
What’s not to love about this cutie.
Here is a little bit about Emma, and her work.
Emma Kaufmann was born in London, England of an artist mother and musician father. She speaks German as her mom is an Austrian, her dad a Brit – which makes her an Austrish. The artistic blood flowed through her veins and as a child she liked nothing better than to curl up in a corner with her sketchbook and put down all her fantastical imaginings.Later on Emma studied Art History and Art and spent many hours being classically trained. She honed her skills in anatomy and life drawing and painting. Then, after a meeting with Mr Right Emma hopped the pond to Baltimore USA thirteen years ago and got married, had two kids and has since acquired two guinea pigs called Peanut and Marshmallow (who she calls her grandpigs which some people find a bit odd).
Emma believes she is pretty culturally assimilated into life in the USA apart from not really understanding the US electoral system or the rules of American Football. She has also written quite a few books including Cocktails at Naptime – A Woefully Inadequate Guide to Early Motherhood and blogs about her artistic adventures at http://www.studioemmakaufmann.blogspot.com/
Her passion for both animals and kids led to her career as a portrait artist and she loves to create portraits that are perfect for your needs which you will treasure for years to come. Working from your emailed photos,
Emma creates pet or human portraits in pastel and watercolor. She can even create a portrait of your child and your pet together – a unique gift for a loved one. Contact her to talk about all your portrait needs at emmakcontact[@]yahoo.com
