"This piece is a portrait of the person who introduced me to the healing modality that would change my life. I used to be kind of cynical and angry and with the use of shadow and inner child work through a proprietary process I was able to begin healing a lot of trauma and limiting beliefs. A lot of my work is inspired by these concepts. It’s a forever journey and I’m okay with that."

Artist Bio

Emily Lovejoy, b. 1988, is a New Orleans based multidisciplinary artist. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art with an emphasis on painting from the University of New Orleans in 2012. Here practice focuses on painting, photography, and ceramics. Across all mediums Lovejoy explores identity as well as the connection between humanity and nature. 

Artistic Process

In Emily Lovejoy's iconic portraits, the contrast between real and surreal is confronted through a lens of bold imagery and hypnagogic colors. Her subjects, seemingly existing in parallel worlds, tempt the viewer to stay and interpret their own projections. The goal is to invoke an emotional response through contemporary composition, and modern surrealism. It is important for Lovejoy to record her subjects and capture not only their likeness, but also a sense of their personality and they time they live in. "Portraiture is a calling I will never fully understand, but with each piece I glean fresh motives."
