Born 1991 Emily Persson is a full time artist living and working in Melbourne, Australia. Persson is a multi generational artist and spent her childhood camping off grid in regional Queensland and New South Wales. Persson’s love for the Australian Landscape and Art collide in 2017 when she became a full time artist and moved from Brisbane to Melbourne. Persson paints intuitively, remembering landscapes in detail and the feelings she felt whilst immersed in the vast Australian country. Persson regularly embarks on cross country journeys across Victoria and NSW and later describes them visually in her South Yarra studio. Persson paints the landscapes she explores between cities, capturing moments in every season and light. Being immersed by the land allows space for Persson to put into prospective current realities and softens the anxieties of inner city living. Emily is an Australian Art Prize Finalist.
