Originally from Minnesota, Emilie Llewellyn Simons made Australia her permanent home in 2010. In 2019 she moved to Queenstown from nipaluna/Hobart to finally settle in a place she felt would embrace and nurture her needs, and reflect and resonate with her core being.
Emilie studied fine art from 1997 to 2000 and graphic design from 2005 to 2007, but mostly abandoned creating any art after leaving college in 2000. It was not until 2015 she finally began seriously painting again.
Emilie sees herself first and foremost as an astrologer and second as an artist. She has been seriously studying and practising astrology since 1998 and has been a lifelong stargazer and amateur astronomer.
Emilie’s paintings are strongly influenced by her deep love of all things celestial and are inspired by the natural world. She uses geometry, colours, patterns, and symbolism to convey complex concepts and visual stories.
