Emily Proud is a San Francisco based artist best known for her watercolor paintings.
Her work showcases the unique traits of her medium, and studies relationships of color, line, and depth, using negative space to create flat, geometric pieces. Her recent paintings have made a shift towards the representational, using traditional painting subjects, such as landscape and still-life, but they hold the same calm nature as her previous, more abstract, work.
Emily is a native San Franciscan and lives in the Mission with her husband, son, and tuxedo cat. She has a BA in Fine Art from UCLA. She has collaborated with illustration clients such as Airbnb and Chronicle Books, sold prints of her work on One Kings Lane, Artfully Walls and Anthropologie, and her work has been shown in galleries and retail spaces throughout the Bay Area. In addition to her art practice, she also loves working with young children and teaches preschool.
