Emily Jenkins

Emily Jenkins is a young artist who loves to share her artwork with others. Her “formal” art training consists of two years of local youth art classes but she has been creating art in some form since the time when she first learned to hold a crayon. Emily was just 13 years old when she created the piece titled “NL Aurora Borealis”. While she has tried most of the traditional art mediums (acrylic, watercolour, pastels, charcoal, etc.), her favourite by far is watercolour and she hopes to develop these skills further in the future.
