About the artist...

Emily Taylor Rogers is a rising artist currently living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A Michigan native, she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Gwen Frostic School of Art at Western Michigan University. Her recent artworks combine her education in traditional processes with her love for experimentation and contemporary design, resulting in multimedia works that project her vision. Portraiture plays a large part in her work, and often incorporate surreal elements. Concepts of femininity, spirituality, nature and symbolism continuously inspire and influence her creative process.

Emily strives to continually chase freedom, be authentic and bring her creative spirit into every aspect of her life. Her constant hope throughout her artistic journey is to shine a little light into this world, cause people to think and feel deeply, and continue to be inspired by the energies surrounding her. Creating every chance she gets, traveling to expand her experiences, practicing yoga, modeling and collaborating with other creatives when the opportunities arise - her goal is to stay multidimensional in her talents and never stop learning and growing.

"If you are born an artist, you have no choice but to fight to stay an artist."

- Lana Del Rey
