Artist Statement:

This pandemic made me realize that not everyone and everything in life is meant to be. Not everything we own are ours. Once we leave this world we are leaving everything but ourselves. So my piece “going with the flow” represents the cycle of life itself. We are all humans flowing and floating away, always rushing and not truly living. But once in a while we must enjoy. Enjoy this little time we have here until it’s gone.

Joyful Paintings by Emily Shih

It’s the Little Things

I am certain you will be finding the joy in these paintings as much as I have! Emily Shih has the goal of using her paintings to lift others up and she definitely succeeds in her endeavors. Come take them in to bring goodness to your day!


My name is Emily Shih. I am an self-taught artist who lives in Taiwan. I work primarily in acrylic and watercolor. My artwork has been shown in exhibitions in Taiwan, New York, South Korea, South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. 

I fell in love with creating art at an early age and has never stopped in the pursuit of this passion. For me, art is about falling in love with something, it’s about the feelings it conjures 

up inside you. 

My artworks are inspired by nature’s beauty. I love using rich and vivid color on painting. By piling up different shapes of hue blocks, I transform the realist world into a bright and splendid world of my own. This is how I praise nature, and a way of self-expression. 

I believe that artworks can bring people a lot of throbbing of mind, therefore, I want to use my work to heal people’s hearts. I want for people to look at my artworks and feel the same thing that I do- peaceful, happiness, joy and always believing in something good. So, I welcome you to join me on this visual journey. 




Krista Doran – Online Open Mic



Krista Doran:

I have always loved creating. Inspired through the crafting of projects with my father. I started by drawing on everything in front of me, becoming more creative with each new medium I found.  I began lessons in the 6th grade, following through high school, continuing into college some years later.

My style has grown on it’s own. Journeying toward an enjoyment with acrylics, oils, charcoals and pastels. Everything in life is an experience: colors, textures, human forms, dreams, emotions are an inspiration of life.

 As a woman and an artist, I’ve enjoyed bringing the emotions and the wonderment of life into many different creations with vibrant color and blends of detail. Art has always been a passion and an outlet, but more than that, an escape and connection to life.

By taking my own perspective and using art as a way to process, interpret and journey through all the emotions and experiences I’ve had; this has helped me grow and tell my stories in my own way. Beyond my own stories and messages, I encourage everyone to find their own curiosity in all the beauty and ugly around us.
