Emily Dodson (b. 1980) learned to paint alongside her artist mother. She has a distinct point of view as an artist, creating work that is vibrant, imaginative, joyful, and full of bold colors. Emily builds fantastical worlds through her art, populating her work with oversized flowers, a variety of whimsical creatures—skydiving pigs, flying frogs—and the very occasional human figure. Although she is especially adept at working with acrylics and pastels, she is always open to experimenting with new mediums. Emily has been a SAGE studio artist since 2020.
