Illustrative Art & Oil Painting 


Emily V. Long 

Fabric of my Nature

I am a primarily self-taught artist from Los Angeles, California.  My father introduced to me to his love for painting when I was a child and I have been painting with acrylics and mixed media for the last 24 years.  I fell in love with oil painting in recent years and have explored new artistic styles.  I derive much of my inspiration from world affairs, the environment, mythology, and visionary arts to capture emotional depictions of both resilience and surrender when faced with turbulence and forces beyond our control.  

Art has been meaningful to me in ways beyond what words can capture, it's beyond a hobby.  When a huge dose reality came into play I strayed from an artists’ ideal path in life.  I graduated from business school here in California in 2018.  During college, I had a five-year career in graphic art.  I then started a career in law and currently work in business litigation as a civil defense paralegal.  Though I find great satisfaction in my legal career, I find my true spirit in front of an easel. 

One of my deepest desires in life is to continue to grow and develop as an artist both personally and professionally. 

I am thrilled to be sharing my pieces with you.  The detail and illustrative style write their own story for each viewer and the meanings people derive from my paintings speak volumes to me.

The highlight of my life is bringing people happiness and inspiration through my art. I would love to work on a piece that speaks to you personally. Contact me for information about commissions.
