About the Founder
.EM is a Californian through & through & her design sensibilities reflect this. Her work covers such a variety of mediums it’s hard to keep count and is driven by spiritual and therapeutic motives. She calls her pop-contemporary visions "Radvertisements"© as they display the same neon hues found in most 80s surf fashions and modern day advertising. These Radvertisements blur the lines between buying//selling. chaos//control, masculine//feminine, visible//hidden, and valuable//worthless. She is best known & celebrated for her realistic portraiture, aggressively colorful abstractions, and for her cartoon-like character: "The Pile"© - a plump, androgynous creature that wears high heels & a tight thong - forever lazily pouring liquid into its donut-shaped mouth. Her "radioactive", kinesthetic approach to creating art is similar to her approach to surfing: Wild, magical & just a touch reckless.
