Emma and Oscar

The career of Whitehorse artist Emma Barr has spanned over one decade.  The third-generation artist was educated at Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson, B.C. and graduated with a fine art diploma and a major in mixed media.

In addition to her studio work, which focuses primarily on painting, Emma creates commissioned works and shares her talents through teaching art in her studio to students of all ages.

Emma's work evolves with her exploration of medium and inspiration. At various points in her career, she has worked with wax and pigment medium, cera cola, which culminated in a body of abstract work; with oil paints, which emotively explore landscape; and in light sculpture.  Each evolution produces a realized style that documents a vibrant period of intellectual and creative growth.

I'm almost finished this new painting, yet to be titled. I feel I need to fix up the reflection and water surface and plot in a whole other layer of foreground willow trees in even brighter yellow.The location is the Burwash Uplands, a seldom explored hunting trail that reached up high into the valleys of the Amphitheater and Denali mountain ranges. I believe you also see the back side of Archbould mountain in the Kluane park boundary. You definitely see the jewel blue Kluane lake from this region.
