Emily Verbeten – gouache and watercolor
"My work is about learning the relationships between the things that make our planet beautiful and diverse. My primary method of collecting these things is through journaling and sketching. I find it helpful to observe and document things visually, learning for me is active, fluid and full of questions. Many of my sketchbooks have an equal balance of hasty pencil and watercolor sketches, detailed observational drawings, and notes scrawled in the margins."
