We’ve been a huge fan of our friend Emily since we first laid eyes on her colorful artistic creations. Get to know one of fave artists and follow her Instagram for tons of inspiration and good vibes!
1) Introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about what you do, your art and where you’re from!
My name is Emily Deechaleune. I’m 22 years old. Born and raised in Methuen, Massachusetts. I’m a visual artist, who draws and paints 🙂 I usually do portraits and right now, I love to draw mandalas, zen doodle and things that are good vibe related, such as the sun, moon, elephants, flowers etc.
2) How did you get into being an artist?
I’ve loved art since I can remember. As a child I would always go to a book store called “Borders”. My brother and I would get drawing books and would learn to draw for hours. Since middle school, I always told myself that I would become some type of artist and would work in the arts field.
3) What is one piece of advice you’d give to aspiring artists?
Dream big and NEVER GIVE UP on anything that makes you happy! Whatever you go through in life, you’re going to have your ups and downs and you need to fight through it. Don’t give up because it’s hard, push through it and you’ll learn and grow as a person. You’ll thank yourself later in the long run 🙂
4) What does ‘living free’ mean to you?
To me, living free means being your true self and doing whatever it is that your heart desires. People are going to judge you regardless if you’re a good or bad person. At the end of the day, all you have is yourself and you should make sure you’re doing things for you and not for others. Do things that satisfy your soul and make you happy.
