Artist, Emily Ozier and her husband John reside in Memphis, Tennessee with their five (soon to be six) children. She is a graduate of Auburn University with a degree in Communication and English Literature. She has studied in Italy with an impressionist master, focusing on a method passed down from the impressionist painter John Singer Sargent.
Emily's mother remembers discovering her daughter was an artist, when at the age of three she designed and painted a family of bumblebees and then created a 3D house filled with bee furniture for them. Every school notebook of hers was filled with drawings, and sketches, and studies of life around. She published her first work at the age of 10 with an illustrated cookbook. Her drawing for years and years laid the foundation for the painting that would come later in her life. A classical realist education in drawing of proportion and the human figure prepared her to then become an impressionist painter, just as a classical education in music might prepare a jazz musician. It was the discipline of realism that then creating the framework for impressionism to be birthed in Emily's work.
The daughter of a Cuban American, Emily's expressive style and bold strokes may find their origins in her Spanish roots. Her Cuban grandfather was a physician and taught at the Univeristy of Tennessee Medical School. Interestingly his escape from the realism of medicine was his time painting on minature canvases. These works of art were filled with the bold rememberences of the Cuba he escaped.
Emily is also passionate about children's education. She teaches her children at home using a classical education model with much emphasis on Literature and the Arts. She has found much direction and inspiration in the writings of British educator Charlotte Mason as well as authors Susan Shaffer McCualley and Susan WIse Baur. Step into their home and you might find violins being played, The Secret Garden being read aloud, the Greek Olympics being acted out, and ,of course, paintings being created by all members of the family.
Her work can be found in private and public collections throughout the United States and has been collected in London as well.
"An artist must educate himself; he cannot be educated, he must test things our as they apply to himself; his life is one long investigation of things and his own reaction to them. If he is to be interesting to us it is because he renders a very personal account. . . All art that is worthwhile is a record of an intense life, and each individual artist's work is a record of his special effort, search, and findings, in a language especially chosen by himself and devised best to express him. . ." Robert Henri 1848
