Artist Emily Ozier and her husband John reside on a big grassy piece of land in Tennessee with their 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.

In 2014, Emily attended training at Harvard seeking to deepen her understanding of how learning takes place in and through the arts. She also examined the role of passion in learning and the unique capacity of the arts to inspire passion-driven learning and meaningful connections to ourselves, our community and the world around us, thus connecting her two main areas of work: education and the arts.

Her work can be found in private and public collections throughout the United States and has been collected in London as well. You can learn more about Emily on her website.
