Emiliya Lane

“As a classically trained painter and art instructor, I paint all subjects with enthusiasm. But what brings me the greatest joy is painting two things:  capturing everchanging features of Nature and also an intricate landscape of the human face; where even the slightest change in mood or emotion can have transformational effects.”
