Hi there

My name is Emily and this is my dedicated space for documenting my journey with creative living. It is my hope, that I can inspire those of you who visit, read and look through this space to find the curiosity to follow your own inner voice, seek out and do the thing that makes you go “this is what life’s all about.”

Venus // The Lovers

Venus // The Lovers

The Lovers (strong emotions - a choice of the heat that cannot be made by logic alone, and represents the power of the human heart) depicted as Venus, the Roman goddess of love.

I originally was going to go for the Greek version, Aphrodite but I really wanted to do a similar set-up to Botticelli’s Venus as I wanted to draw the goddess on the shell and I thought that was Aphrodite!

I really liked painting this goddess and got her finished quite quickly, as the background is very simple. I decided I didn’t want to do two people/ lovers but instead take a more symbolic approach, having Venus look quite despairing, alone and clutching her heart adrift at sea.
