Emily Pavlovic Chiles' Biography

Emily Chiles enjoys painting with oils to create inviting landscapes and dramatic subjects such as oversize portraits of lilies.  She uses vivid colors to further enhance the appeal of her paintings.

Born in Texas in 1952, Emily was exposed to the arts early with her involvement in the Midland Community Theatre.  Her love of expressive brushstrokes got its start when she painting sets, using large brushes and huge canvases.  She went on to majoring in theatre where she designed and built sets, acted and directed plays.  She earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Theatre from Skidmore College in 1974.

After retiring from the corporate world, Emily started painting in 2016 under the tutelage of Steve Parker of the Art League of Houston.  Her typical medium is oil, but she also paints with gauche and acrylic.  She enjoys painting “plein air”, since it reminds her of her camping days as a Girl Scout.  Her studio is located at Sawyer Yards, an enclave of artists studios, in a former furniture warehouse.
