Wk 6- Artist Interview- Emily Babbette

Emily is a Drawing and Painting student at CSULB. Her interest in art began in high school. She recently began seriously painting around two years ago. She mainly paints black and white portraits. She had her first art gallery showing last semester at the CSULB galleries. Emily used to paint purely imaginative and fantasy pieces. Emily studied abroad in England, where she visited dozens of museums and gained much of her inspiration for her art.

Her portraits are so life-like, and detailed I’ve never been so close to any portraits like hers. She still keeps a bit of her fantasy themes in her portraits, for example she has a Ouija board in one of her self-portraits. She says she remains the same person in each of her paintings, and tries to blend in her inspirations.
