The daughter of a Cuban American, Emily Ozier’s expressive style and bold strokes may find their origins in her Spanish roots.  Her Cuban grandfather, a physician, found his escape from the realism of medicine was his time painting on miniature canvases.  These works of art were filled with the bold remembrances of the Cuba he escaped.    Emily’s mother remembers discovering her daughter was an artist at an early age. Every school notebook of hers was filled with drawings, sketches, and studies of life around.  Her drawing for years and years laid the foundation for the painting that would come later in her life. Emily is a graduate of Auburn University and she has studied in Italy with an impressionist master, focusing on a method passed down from the impressionist painter John Singer Sargent.  In 2014, Emily attended training at Harvard seeking to deepen her understanding of how learning takes place in and through the arts.
