Emily’s creative genius was reflected in her art. She was an original who continuously worked on her paintings and pottery for art shows and recently sold her work through Etsy online. As a toddler, she would bring her mother amazing works of art she made out of sticks, rocks and leaves. In high school she won first place in the state for her piece titled “Clairvoyance” from the South Dakota High School Activities Association. She was also an accomplished seamstress who designed her own clothing and made hats, accessories and jewelry.
Emily’s original art will be on display in the Avera Addiction Care Center when it opens in Sioux Falls in 2019. Prints will be available for donation in the future.
