Emmett O’Criordain lives and works in New England as a fine artist with a representational style. He works mostly in pastels, using layering and fixatives to gain depth to his still lifes and landscapes. In his still lifes, the themes of reflective objects such as glass bottles and copper pitchers contrasted with the natural textures of fruit occur often. Emmett studied art at Manhattanville College, achieving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in just 2 years of accelerated study. His home is shared with his wife, Patricia, who is also his Representative, as well as the boss, a Siamese cat named Fiona.
