A curated view…
You are invited to view a curated selection of works on paper (pencil & ink/gouache) and oil paintings on canvas or copper. Works on paper are organized by size (i.e., 11″ x 14″, 14″ x 17″, 18″ x 24″, etc.), each presented in its own slider. You can click on any size category to open up a page to view all the images in that category. Type an instrument or a person’s name in the search bar available on each category home page, and any image with a piano in it, or the person you are interested in, will appear.
Visitors to the storefront gallery at 1036 Royal Street can view many more images than we can show here. Interested in a drawing/painting of a particular musician/band/theme, but can’t find it? Send us your requests for specifics and more information here.
Paper / Canvas
“Amazing experience from beginning to end. Emilie gives back to the musicians she draws when she sells the piece, a wonderful way to support the whole art scene.”
“Your work visualizes the energy of the music and in so doing captures ( does not freeze) the spontaneity of the jazz moments. There seems to be oneness between you, the drawing activity/experience and the music that I imagine to be meditative. You have a strong hand.”
“This piece captures the spirit of Preservation Hall for me, from the intimacy and ‘closeness’ of the space, to how some musicians are resting quietly while other are jammin’, to the audience who is absorbing it in each their own way and world, that is exactly how it looked to me.”
“We’ve moved and aren’t able to witness all this fab stuff. You rule!”
“Brilliant work! Emilie has a unique perspective on life in New Orleans.”
