Most days you can find me hanging with my son and daughter somewhere in Austin, TX. We love going on adventures around town. When Mila is napping and my Ryland is at school, I am working on my art. I also paint a whole bunch in the evenings on my fancy shmancy kitchen table. 


I am mostly known for my whimsical and nostalgic watercolor paintings. I create time-lapse videos of everything I paint. I make it a whole lot more fun to watch paint dry over at my Instagram page: @emilymercedesart


People often refer to me as detail-oriented and someone that doesn’t shy away from a painting challenge. I have completed two large painting-a-day projects over the past three years. The most recent one, #100daysofdrinks, made me thirsty! They call art a practice for a reason. I PRACTICE a lot.


The things I’m most passionate about in life are my husband, children and my art. When I’m not busy painting, I love to travel! 

I have enjoyed being at more live art events and markets this year. I am hoping to be at more in the future!
