Featured Student Artist: Emily Watson


Taco Del MarEmily is a Top Ten Winner from our Spring 2018 art contest for her piece “Taco Del Mar.”

My name is Emily Watson and I am 14 years old. I’ve been drawn to art and music for as long as I can remember. I created “Taco Del Mar” in my art class at The Bear Creek School. It was my first knife painting so it was all experimentation. Now I enjoy knife painting because it makes such rough paint strokes into something beautiful. To me that conveys the message that beauty isn’t always about perfection and spot-on detail. Even a quick, harsh piece like the one I created conveys emotion, sometimes more than other pieces because of its rawness. Art has always been my passion and I’ve started making it my career, exhibiting at Emerald City Comic Con as my first step. Hopefully I’ll be headed to an art college and get a job doing what I love.
