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.

Native Memphian and mother of five, Emily Ozier’s artwork is held in public and private collections throughout the United States. She says, “My art is about the space and rhythm and pace of my life. There are some places in my life that are so intense and packed while I am educating five kids at home. In the same day, however, I get to escape to the stillness of my studio–such contrasts. I also find that the juxtaposition of contrasts mimics the space and quietness of the soul amid the flurry of necessary activities.”
