Artist Emily Ozier and her husband John reside in the grassy land of Tennessee with their six children. Emily graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Communication and English Literature. She has studied in Italy with an impressionist master focused on a method passed down from the impressionist painter John Singer Sargent. In 2014, Emily attended training at Harvard, seeking to deepen her understanding of how learning takes place in and through the arts.
The daughter of a Cuban American, Emily's expressive style and bold strokes may find their origins in her Latin roots. Her Cuban grandfather was a physician who taught at the Univeristy of Tennessee Medical School. He escaped from the routine of medicine by painting on small canvases. These bold works of art inspired by memories of Cuba were influential on Emily as an artist.
Emily's mother remembers discovering her daughter was an artist when, at the age of three, she designed and painted a family of bumblebees and then created a 3-D house filled with bee furniture for them. Every school notebook of Emily's was filled with drawings, sketches and studies of life around her. She published her first work at the age of 10 in an illustrated cookbook. For many years, drawing laid the foundation for the painting that would come later in her life. A classical realist education in proportionate drawing of the human figure laid the framework for impressionism to arise in Emily's work.
Her work can be found in private and public collections throughout the United States and has been collected in London as well.
