Images do have great power.
Therefore, as an artist I strongly believe I have a great responsibility regarding what I create and put out in the world, therefore I choose to induce blissfulness through images…
It is my intention to elevate the vibrational tone of my surroundings and I infuse my paintings with that intention so that looking at them soothes the mind, lifts the spirit and feeds the soul with primal exhilaration.
I work in a tiny studio, in the small coastal town of Bolinas in California where I settled in 2000. I am a self taught painter, born in France in 1958, I always loved drawing and painting, and started exhibiting and selling my work in 1989.
Today I have the joy to be a full time self supported artist through the sales of my work at the studio or through my website http://www.emmelinecraig.com.
I am currently looking for publishers because my dream is to see my images go all around the world…
I currently paint with watercolors on paper, and non-toxic oils on canvas. They are both exhilarating mediums in different ways, I really enjoy them as much.
The pieces presented here are all watercolors, because in time I created a lot more of those than oils which I started using only 2 years ago. One can look at my work on: http://www.emmelinecraig.com
Imaginary scene, inspired by a real colorful coffee cart here in my town.(I only modified the roof and “transported” it in a different place)
This piece is about transition, in life in general, in relationships, in health…
This is the second version of an imaginary scene that is dear to me. The first version, called “The Lantern” is posted on my website.
Peace and Quiet
What is more stress relieving than gazing at a blue ocean, in presence of a lazy cat stretched out in the sun? I played with the different depths of the scene to get a little surreal feeling.
It was a time of change and I was re-affirming my love of life in the Now.
This is preparatory work for a large oil on canvas, available on my website, called “Backyard Zen”. It’s about the daily bliss of sitting in one’s backyard, surrounded by wild grasses and open sky.
Laundry in the Wind with Green Hills
For me there is something extremely homey and joyfully free in fresh laundry hung on a rope out in the wind…
Early Morning on Bolinas Lagoon
Just the bliss of very early morning on this beautiful body of water that we are blessed to have close by !
