EmaLee Birnie

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I am a lifelong Grand Rapids resident. I started using colored pencils when I was a pre-teen. I designed fashions for my paper dolls. Colored pencils gave me the detail I was trying to achieve. I studied art throughout highschool and college. I intended to pursue a career in graphic arts, but life got in the way. After a 30 year career in real estate, I retired. During those years my husband and I collected original art by other artists. It was then I decided to get back into creating art. I attended outdoor art shows during the summer in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois. We travelled in our motor home with our two Jack Russell Terriers. After having both hips replaced, we decided to give up the Art Fair circuit. Now I show my work in different locations and create art for poster contests. This is my third year in Art Prize.
