As a child, Emily Isabella wandered her family’s Wisconsin prairie, pressing Queen Anne’s Lace flowers against her cheeks as if they were powder brushes. Her work reflects this idealism and serves as a reminder to delight in the everyday.
Based in the Hudson Valley, NY, she continues to be endlessly inspired by the world around her. She shares her studio with her husband Paul Isabella, who is a furniture maker and their cat Omelette, who is very bad.
