About Me:
Emily Metta Starr. Fine Artist

I started creating from a young age with basic pencil and paper drawings, sketching and painting.Although most of my fine art skills and knowledge are self taught, I am thankful for two special mentors in my life who inspired confidence and a passion for art in my spirit.

I realized my gift for portraiture quite by accident at the age of thirteen. As a child I recall disappearing into my bedroom (while I was supposed to be doing chores) with just a yellow HB Ticonderoga pencil and a single sheet of computer paper. I sat for hours on end losing track of the time passing me by. I emerged with drawing in hand to find my mother, standing crossly in my doorway, wondering what I had possibly been doing for the last six hours and why the bathroom was not yet...
