Hi! My name is Emory Ryals. I am originally from Clarksdale, MS. I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a degree in Education. I'm currently a high school teacher in the Mississippi Delta in Marks, MS. I started painting a little over 3 years ago during my junior year of college. I am inspired by color in ordinary places and I try to transfer that inspiration to canvas. The majority of my work is done on cradled wood canvas, it is my favorite surface to paint on! Although I'm inspired by my surroundings everyday, I consider myself a part time artist. Most of my paintings are done over breaks, weekends and summers! I accept commissions during the summer, so if you are interested let me know because summer is around the corner - YAY. Feel free to email me with any questions you have! - Emory 


My studio is located at Quapaw Canoe Company on Sunflower Avenue in Clarksdale, MS. Come visit!
