Emily Mitchell is an artist, wife, mother, and art teacher, living and creating art in Vermont. For the past 20 years, she has been working as an art educator, teaching artists of all ages, and she holds a MA Ed in art education. Her approach to making art is centered around “play,” letting go of what might be “planned” and working with what is happening in the moment; she first encountered this approach when she was in graduate school, working with John Crowe from Massachusetts College of Art, and with Peter London, professor emeritus of art education, UMass Dartmouth. This approach has manifested itself in varied ways throughout her creative career – in drawings, artists books, collaborative work, and most recently, paintings. In addition to the natural world around her, she respects and is inspired by the work and approaches of Peter London, Fredrich Hundterwasser, Caroline Weihrauch, Julia Donaldson, John Crowe, Karl Blossfledt, and many others.
