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. She populates her work with a variety of whimsical creatures—flying pigs, skydiving frogs—and the occasional human figure (Johnny Depp is a favorite). Although she is especially adept at working with acrylics, she is always open to experimenting with new mediums. Emily has been a SAGE studio artist since February 2020.
