If I’m Being Honest
Emily Pascale (B. 1998, Jingdezhen, China) is an oil painter based in the Greater New York City Area. She is an alumna from the University of Oregon, School of Journalism and Communications, where she discovered her passion for visual storytelling. Emily’s paintings are greatly influenced by her identity as an Asian adoptee and reflect the experiences she faces culturally and socially as she navigates young adulthood. The common themes throughout her work revolve around individuality and self exploration. She expresses this through narrative figures and portraits, using a colorful palette to convey a specific feeling relating to the emotional realities of self-discovery.
