EMILY YATES Stop Making Sense
Stop Making Sense
Painter, illustrator and mapmaker Emily Yates is best known for her colorful, joyous artworks in acrylic and watercolor – uplifting paintings and maps celebrating the magic and mystery of the natural world and reverence for the great outdoors, inspiring enjoyment of nature and life. Emily spends lots of time making things and continues to go back to art and creating as a comfort. Observing nature and its creatures - seeing the language of an alive universe - is constant inspiration. She also creates watercolor maps as a tribute to the wonderful public lands (and the plants and animals they support) she’s explored in her 20-year career as an ecologist and seed conservationist. Revisiting the beauty of these places with watercolor and calligraphy promotes reverence and noticing, allowing others to be inspired, enjoy, and act for the preservation of life around them. Emily grew up in southern Illinois.
