Marlowe Emerson is a visual artist whose work explores cycles and patterns in nature and the wisdom they reveal. Her process is informed by her Native American family history and childhood memories of using art as a way of communicating with nature. Gathering and combining imagery in a variety of media, she creates layers of meaning and personal narrative that speak to our symbiotic relationship with the natural world. Emerson holds a degree in French and Art History from Georgetown University and spent a decade studying painting in the south of France. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including the Art in Embassies program. She currently works out of her home studio in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  

I collect images through photography, video, and drawing, then combine them with artifacts of daily life, such as old clothing or scraps of paper, to discover what kinds of relationships are revealed. It is a meditative practice that is not just a method for making art, but a way of learning what nature has to teach us about ourselves. It’s a way of reclaiming nature as a source of wisdom, as well as healing the symptoms of our cultural disconnect with the natural world.  - M.E.
