About Emily Burke


The natural world has been an unparalleled source of inspiration to me. It has become a driving force in my artwork and I find myself returning again and again to depicting natural subject matter. Growing up my family encouraged and embraced my love for nature and I constantly endeavored to learn as much as I could about the animals I encountered. To learn more about the animals I loved so much I attended dozens of conservation-oriented nature camps, visited natural history museums, and pored over as many texts I could get my hands on. The knowledge I had accumulated during these experiences further directed my artwork and I soon became concerned with the education of others. I strive to promote conservation and awareness of the natural world through my work.
