Because you're slightly cooler than average.

Jesper - original portrait painting

The older Jesper gets the clearer things become. After a life time of trying to keep up with the latest pop culture trends and making sure he's always slightly cooler than average, it has dawned upon him that there is no such thing as 'ordinary'. All people have quirks, unfulfilled dreams, odd ways. Not everybody flaunts it, is all. Had he known when he was younger that bland personalities don't really exist, it might have spared him many a night proving himself to an invisible crowd... Bland art on the other hand exists in heaps and it impresses him as little now as it did when he was a young man.

Jesper was finished in November 2020.

Hi! I'm Emily...

I create portraits of fictive people sprung from memories, found images or from people watching behind dark glasses (a secret speciality of mine).

I'm specifically interested in the modern obsession with self-image and our relationship to health and beauty.

I mean, I used to be cool! When did worrying about how many steps I’ve walked in a day become a dinner conversation?
