Born in Minnesota,

Ember has spent time living and traveling in Portugal, Ireland, Zambia, Connecticut, Arkansas and North Carolina. All of these experiences have increased her curiosity about people and cultures, how and why we choose to express ourselves, and the commonalities we share in what makes us human. 

Having grown up the daughter of a carpenter, she builds and stretches her own frames and canvas and is currently exploring outside of the box shapes that are rare amongst traditional art. Her work is visceral and dynamic in its juxtaposition between chaos and control seeking to express the personal and often voiceless experiences that shape and change who we become.

     With this in mind, she paints alla-prima, utilizing dry brushes, knives, stamps and the body as tools to blend, scrape, distress and imprint messages and experiences on canvas resulting in a complex process that is as much the narrative as the end product.  When not in the studio she is out and about in the social blues dance scene, listening to live music somewhere, hiking in the wilderness, or building mammoth pillow forts. She currently lives in Hopkins, MN with her two sons, two bonus daughters, Dearly Loved Pumpkin, and 22 fish.
