Discover the joy of painting, customized to your goals and learning style!
With 12+ years of experience, I have a long history of practicing visual art. Drawing and painting are some of my favorite practices, and I love helping others take what they see and express that through their own hands. Together we'll explore what it means to perceive and express through creative visual means!
About Emilie C.

Hello! I'm Emilie, owner of VATOCA Studios, a boutique multimedia house that provides personalized music/audio services, visual work and artist consultation. Specialties include writing (songwriting, ghostwriting, editing, etc.), vocal production, art direction and independent music strategy. As a professional musician, artist and voice over actress, I have won awards, performed my original music at venues & festivals and booked national TV commercials. I have 12+ years background in classical piano, 6+ years as a gigging musician in Los Angeles and 4+ years in recording & production. I also have years of practice in a number of visual mediums, from oil painting to Adobe Photoshop to the newest mobile apps. With ample experience in both the creative and business sides of being an artist, one of my great joys is equipping others using all that I have learned, and I believe in taking a specialized individual approach for each person and project. Whether you need help with crafting your work, navigating social media or learning an instrument, I'm here to help you figure out the best of what will benefit you. I love all the ways there are to communicate -- through language, sound and visuals -- and am so blessed to share the gift of these arts with others!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!

So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!
