Emily Hayes, born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota, began painting her freshman year of high school. Her 1st painting won 1st place in The 8th Congressional Arts Competition and hung in Congress for 1 year. That event inspired her to become very prolific and since then has made over 150 paintings in the last 10 years. She has spent her adult life traveling and making new discoveries until she moved to Eugene, Oregon in 2015 to pioneer a new style of painting and build a home. All of her paintings are composed on canvas' she has stretched. Acrylic paint is what she primarily uses and occasionally oil paints as well as spray paint. Her inspirations comes from mother earths creations and her motivation comes from people. She is very thankful for all of the love and support of her family, friends and the community.
