Originally from North Carolina, Emily Chaplin has led an 18-year career in the visual arts. An oil painter working in expressive color and painting primarily with palette knife, Emily is currently a Resident Artist at the Red Brick Center for the Arts in Aspen, Colorado. Her abstracted aspen tree paintings have caught the eye of private collectors from around the United States.
“Before I began painting these enigmatic trees, I spent years observing them closely and photographing them in detail. I strive to create paintings that capture the feelings I experience when I am in their presence of aspens. I view each new individual work as a part of an ongoing body that together create a tapestry honoring the beauty of this tree and of the natural world.”
Emily’s work is represented in Arizona by Wilde Meyer Galleries. Click on any piece to enlarge it.
