Meet the Artist

Emily Quandahl

Emily Quandahl is an emerging abstract artist creating layered acrylic works in Minneapolis, Minnesota whose art has been selected for juried shows. As an classically trained musician for over ten years, she shifted her creative endeavors from aural to visual and first started playing with paint in 2016. Her work highlights the juxtaposition between layers of watered down acrylics and opaque geometric shapes on canvases ranging of all sizes. Heavily influenced by the art of practice due to her musical background, each layer of the materials shows the growth and understanding between the artist and mediums being used. Manipulating where the paint will flow, yet letting it do what it naturally wants.

Behind the Design
