Oil Portraits

Emilie Rhys has over forty years experience painting oil portraits from direct observation of models in the studio. The commitment of both artist and model to this process contributes greatly to ensuring that Ms. Rhys creates a portrait of visual and emotional depth. Her color sense is all her own, but she says that the neon lights of performance venues have been a recent inflluence. She is the third generation in her family to work in this medium and genre, her father Noel Rockmore and grandmother Gladys Rockmore Davis having both completed many portrait commissions during their lives.
