Born 1991, Emily Persson is a Melbourne based artist who creates thickly textured impasto oil paintings.

Emily is a multi-generational artist and still uses the same palette knife as her great grandmother. She is emerging as one of Australia’s premier palette knife only artists, particularly specialising in landscapes, seascapes and botanicals. Her unique Impasto style is inspired by a lifetime of being immersed in nature.

Emily has works in galleries in Sydney and New York and held her first solo exhibition in 2019. She has had her work featured in some of Australia’s finest lifestyle print magazines including House & Garden, Belle, Home Beautiful and Country Style, and she is an Australian Art Prize Finalist.
