Emily Uchytil received her BFA from the Hartford Art School and worked as a middle school art teacher before becoming a full time painter.
In her oil paintings she shares her passions for ecology, entomology and intricate patterns like the ones used in antique wallpaper.
Her artwork often shows only a tiny section of a room in order to highlight the often unseen imagery nestled within busy patterned spaces. She created a series of paintings of birds, insects and plants shown on a background of ornate antique wallpaper.
Emily lives and works in Baltimore, MD with her partner, Michael.
