Hurricane Farm

Emily Thomas


I teach art to students, all day every day; but lately I have felt like I need to dedicate more time to doing my own art. I went to Snow College on an art scholarship right out of high school and graduated with a graphic design/illustration degree from the Utah Valley University where I enjoyed drawing, painting, and computer classes but over the past four or five years, I have fallen in love with watercolor. I love the transparency of it, and how it moves across the page with a mind of its own, and how happy I feel when I get into my studio with an empty watercolor sheet staring up at me, a good song playing on the radio, and nothing but time to paint, paint, paint.
