Artist Statement: Around the Bend was painted in White Mountain, New Hampshire during Eric Rhodes Fall Color Week in New Hampshire. It was a gorgeous fall day. Loved the sparkling water and the fall colors. I used the back of my car to provide wind protection and a place to set up.
Bio: Emily Chiles’s entry into the artworld came as a child actress in the Midland Community Theatre in West Texas. Part of her involvement required her to help build and paint sets. Imagine a child painting a 10 x 12-foot canvas. One uses house paint brushes and paints in large figure “8s”. Then one spatters three different colors of paint to provide texture for the stage lighting. Abstract painting was the logical step to express her creative self.
In 2016 she started landscape painting. She has painted plein air in Alaska, New Hampshire, San Francisco, Upstate New York, and her home state of Texas. Being a former Girl Scout, she loves being outside with nature. Sometimes nature is a little too dramatic. In New Hampshire, her car became a studio more than once due to the fierce winds. In Alaska, she painted from the window of her lodging.
Emily is currently the Artist-In-Residence at The Woodlands Art Gallery & Studios where she exhibits her landscapes (both studio and plein air) and her Abstracts, too.
