Emily Ann Dutkiewicz is a young emerging multidisciplinary artist based out of Eastern Iowa working within the mediums of acrylic paint, photography, and graphic design. She studied at California State University San Marcos and graduated in 2020 with a Bachelors in Fine Art with an emphasis in the Visual Arts. She has previously taught studio and digital art at the high school level and now continues as a horse-back riding instructor in her spare time. Emily also stays active within her art community by supporting and participating in local art exhibitions.
Derived from personal experience, research, interpretation, and aesthetic, Emily brings a well-traveled eye to the canvas. Her appreciation for Western American tradition, culture, and landscape, is the inspiration for her work. Emily is captivated by the spirit of the American rancher and cowboy. Her relationship with the American West began with road trips taken as a child--memories of many days spent driving through the regions of the lower forty-eight states.
When she's not capturing the American West, she's living in it. Emily grew up riding and rescuing horses. Additionally influenced by classic country, folk, and bluegrass music, she adds to her repertoire as a singer-songwriter as well.
