“I’m a mother, an artist, a thinker and a meditator. I am a pragmatic idealist and romantic dreamer. Complex but with simple needs, I am in constant search for balance, beauty and harmony. I’m growing, evolving into my true self more every day….”
Emiliya Lane is a multiple award-winning artist living, painting and teaching in Bellevue, WA. Russian born and trained Emiliya has been constantly surrounded by the visual arts.

“As a classically trained painter and art instructor, I depict all subjects with enthusiasm. But what brings me the greatest joy is painting two things: capturing everchanging features of Nature and also an intricate landscape of the human face; where even the slightest change in mood or emotion can have transformational effects.”
