Renaissance art, ornate Byzantine detail and the simple flowers of her garden inspire Emma Villedrouin’s luminous gold pieces. She uses traditional techniques to create “heirloom worthy pieces” that are fresh, playful and elegant. Emma thinks of herself as a colorist who uses richly hued stones and pearls to create her compositions.
Emma was raised in Haïti, easily the most complex Caribbean nation and, of late, the most tragic. Her memories of Haïti remain bright and precious. She credits it in part for her sense of color and bold shapes. Emma lives and works in Northwest Washington, DC with her husband and two young sons.
