Artist Emily Por
A former interior designer with over 20 years of experience in the field, Emily Por started her art training in Japan in the 1980s, under the tutelage of Junichi Kurosawa. She left her career in 2003 to pursue her passion for oil painting full time and had studied in Stamford Art School, Singapore.
Emily works primarily with oil as a medium and her works mainly focus upon themes or subjects inspired by nature, music and emotions from the heart. Some reflect the rich and joyful hues and textures while others evoke more transcendent concepts of tranquility and optimism she feels about life. She sees painting and life as one, and believes strongly that Life is but a canvas to your imagination..
Her paintings can be found in private and corporate collections in America, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan.
