Hi! I’m Emma, the artist behind Emma Sage Fine Art. I’m from the Washington, DC area, but recently moved to Santa Monica, CA, and I’m absolutely loving living in paradise!
After four years of studying Painting & Printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University, I took a break from art. I was creatively drained, and wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go in artistically. In 2016 I finally got the art bug again, and I knew I needed to start fueling my passion. After a year of getting re-acquainted with painting (and learning how to use acrylics!), I launched Emma Sage Fine Art in 2017 with a goal of creating whimsical, fun, accessible art that brings joy into the world and a smile to the faces of those who see it.
My current work depicts animals in their best party attire. I get inspiration for each piece from the animals themselves. I imagine a personality for each animal, which then inspires their outfit. My party animals don't take life too seriously, they are just here for the party...literally!
I'm featured on episode 35 of The Spitfire Podcast! You'll hear a bit more about my background, why I started this business and how I juggle being an artist and having a full time office job.
