Emmie Ruth Wise
Born in Columbus, Georgia practically with a colored pencil in her hand, Emmie Ruth has been creating all of her life. This quality was fostered in her by her mother, who had an affinity for turning her drawings into invitation and shirt designs for her birthday parties. As she painted various buildings for commission work throughout college, her increasing interest in architecture led her to work part-time during her last year in school with both a traditional interior designer and an architectural designer in Buckhead, Atlanta. Her paintings also gave her the opportunity to study rendering and French architecture under world-renowned watercolorists in Paris. After graduating with a degree in Product Design from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a certificate in Classical Architecture from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Emmie Ruth worked for a high-end architecture firm in New York for a short time. She is currently a freelance artist as she lets her paint brush determine the strokes of her career and future.
