Emerald Barkley is an artist based in the California foothills who uses watercolor as her main vehicle to explore ideas about identity, morality, and human behavior.
"I am endlessly fascinated by human behavior and emotion and how our what happens in our childhood establishes our lens and informs our worldview. I am in the process of creating a language to be able to talk about these things through the images that I am drawn to again and again; namely bones, animals, flowers, and miscellaneous viscera. These symbols carry a great deal of meaning for me, and I like to weave them together to create a narrative in such a way that is very similar to a tarot reading."
