Emili is an Australian musician with a love for her rural upbringing and connection to animals. With a deep passion for animals, accompanied with her successful music career, her previous experience in small business, education and event management played a vital role towards the establishment of ROWA (Reach Out Wildlife Australia).
This painting alludes to her passion with wildlife rescue as well as her own personality.
She was a delight to work with and being highly creative she was really in tune with my process.
