Artist Spotlight: Emma Rose Kennedy

Born and raised in the sticky swamps near Miami, Florida, artist Emma Rose Kennedy now lives and works in Penwith, England, while pursuing an MFA in painting at the Slade School of Fine Art. Describing herself as “one of the 21st Century’s slowest painters,” Kennedy’s meditative and meticulous practice explores moments of quiet — “when the mind slips to daydream and reality gives way to something else.” She draws inspiration from myths, legends, and art history, explaining that her small works on aluminum “hope to act as two-way mirrors, quietly bridging the physical and dream worlds, even if only for a moment.”
