Emily Little of Little E Studio is a self-taught mixed media artist based in Nashville, Tennessee, who uses layer upon layer of color and texture to create works of intentional joy.

Prior to pursuing the creative life full-time, Emily was an English major who taught children with learning differences by day but dabbled in a variety of creative outlets by night, including refurbishing thrift store and garage sale finds with paint and fabric for an antique booth.

Needing a creative outlet after closing her antique booth, Emily took a weekend abstract art class with some friends. The class helped Emily overcome her inhibitions  because it emphasized expression over perfection. Armed with the knowledge that there are no mistakes, only layers, Emily began painting every day.

Other than that weekend class, Emily is primarily self-taught. Her style developed as she experimented with different mediums and applications until she found her niche with acrylic paints and the palette knife. Her fresh palette and unique style have also been featured on home decor, gift and seasonal lines through Creative Co-op, a wholesale company that licenses select images for its products. This successful collaboration has allowed Emily’s bright and happy artwork to grace homes all over the world.

When not in the studio, Emily loves to read, travel and drink sweet tea with her hilarious husband, adorable daughter, and anxiety-ridden rescue dog, Tucker.

Emily’s original paintings can be seen in fine art galleries and home decor boutiques in Tennessee and Florida. Her licensed images can be found on home decor and gift products nationwide.
