Emma Lee Fleury, Canadian Artist

Artist Biography

      Emma Lee Fleury is a multidisciplinary artist and musician from Niagara, Ontario who is currently located in the Horseshoe Valley, Ontario. Her artworks and musical collaborations have ventured through an array of venues and festivals in Southern Ontario and West/Northwest of Canada. She studied Sculpture and Fine Art at the University of Fraser Valley, BC, received her bachelor’s degree in Studio Arts at Brock University, ON and she received the Standards Readers' Choice Diamond Best Local Artist Award of 2020. The concepts of her work revolve around perceptions of the Earth, the Universe and the Abyss fused with theories about environmental issues as they pass though the human vessel in waves of love and mixed mediums. Currently, her landscape works focus on representing the effects of climate change on the Earth and its' inhabitants in efforts to raise environmental awareness and ignite change. Her creations bloom and morph into sculptures, recycled art, earth art, set design, installations, paintings, music, words and more. Over her artistic career, she has developed a cohesive style within the genre of landscape painting, it’s an ethereal merge of realism and expressionism with the hovering conceptualization of the human connection to the natural world.

 

Music

MOONFOX/Emma Lee Fleury | Niagara, ON
