About the Artist:

Emily Liefke

"Vincent van Gogh. Everyone said to him, 'You can't be a great painter. You only have one ear.' And you know what he said? 'I CAN'T HEAR YOU.'" -Steve Carrell (Dinner for Schmucks)

I was born and raised in Madison and have been creating art since I first learned how to hold a crayon. I currently live in Milwaukee and teach art in Mequon. One of my favorite things to draw or paint are portraits of animals and people. There is something really beautiful and magical that happens when your own drawing or painting starts looking back at you. The artwork and artists that truly inspire me are the ones who have the courage to create something that makes us laugh, cry, smile or FEEL SOMETHING. In the true words of Vincent, "What's done in love is done well."
