What Does Romance Mean to an Artist? (Interview)

Hello, romance lovers!

Today, I’ll be posting a video I made for my Digital & Online Media class where I had to interview someone in relation to the content I have here on my blog. I decided to interview my bestie, Emily Penhollow, because she is a hopeless romantic like me.

Instead of expressing that feeling through writing (as I’ve been known to do), Emily expresses her desire for love and romance through her paintings. They say a picture speaks a thousand words, and I can verify that Emily’s art speaks volumes about what she’s feeling deep inside.

Watch the Interview Here:

Close-up Photos of Emily’s Art:

In the video, you’ll notice she references a mannequin she’s been painting for a while. Here are some close-up photos of those images that represent love. One of the paintings is of a skeleton intimidating a woman below. Not sure how romantic it is, but definitely sexually charged and beautiful.


What Else You Need To Know About Emily:

  • She’s a student at Texas State University like me. She’s getting a degree in general studies as she loves theater, communications, and mass communications.
  • Makeup is another specialty of hers as she enjoys the painting of faces. Mastering the art of makeup is a task most people don’t realize as we see it so often.
  • She’s also a photographer, currently building her portfolio so she can make a career out of something she loves.
  • She enjoys audio books much more than actually reading so she can paint or move around the apartment while enjoying a novel.

Thanks for reading!
