There are few sureties in this life, it is said, but one of them is that every little girl will someday grow up. From her first tooth to her first date, the milestones in every child’s life seem to come more quickly with each passing day. Every parent can remember the first time they took the training wheels off their child’s bicycle and watched their little one ride away, feeling a mixture of pride and apprehension.

The beautiful autumn scene in Emily McPhie’s Fine Art Limited Edition, "One If by Land," tells such a story. Fall has come to the path through the park and as the little girl rides by, the heavy leaves fall from their trees. It is a time of change, a time of remembering the treasures of the past and of looking forward to the future.

Emily McPhie’s dreamy paintings are touched with the tenderness of young motherhood. Her portraits of women and children convey universal messages of love, determination and hope.


Emily McPhie
Emily Christensen McPhie was born in Utah in 1978 into the highly-artistic Christensen family. As a child, she toured the museums of the United States and Europe with her family. At each museum, Emily and her brothers and sisters were told they could choose a postcard as a souvenir, and young Emily's postcard collection quickly filled with early American portraits and Degas' studies of young dancers. The influence of these museum trips is apparent in Emily's portfolio of paintings. Growing up, the pursuit of art was second- nature for McPhie, who went on to win awards for art in high school and beyond. Emily graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with an emphasis in painting. Emily currently resides in Chandler, Arizona with her husband Gavin and daughters Cordelia Lavender, Clover Iona and Ezra Petunia. "Motherhood has brought out some pretty strong emotions and ideas," says McPhie. "Translating those thoughts and emotions into images gives me clarity, and I find I want to document them before my perception changes." Her daughters show every sign of following in their mother's footsteps. "Half my studio is theirs," she laughs. "They have their table and their easel and all their supplies. I find that they're in here even when I'm not. They just love it - they're very creative." Emily's original paintings are sold by Terzian Galleries in Park City, Utah, as well as on her website, www.emilymcphie.com
