Emily Kalina is a local Portsmouth artist, who primarily draws her inspiration for the paintings she creates from the stunning local seascapes.
Emily was classically trained at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and after years of selling her large scale watercolors in galleries and shows, she began to work with companies such as Anthropologie, Nordstrom, Michael Kors, Rachael Ray, and more, to design prints for apparel and accessories.

When iPads debuted in 2010, Emily began to explore painting digitally and as technology evolved, so did Emily’s style and approach. This new, portable, medium has allowed her to combine her product design skills with her layered and textured approach to watercolor painting, resulting in stunning, vibrant, artwork that feels so real, you feel as if you could step into the painting.
This approach allows Emily to not only print her paintings on traditional media like canvas and paper, but the same paintings can also be enjoyed on gift items. Check out the brand new section of Emily’s website where you can choose a painting you love, apply it to an available product like a tote bag, puzzle, throw pillow, or bath mat, and boom! You have a completely one-of-a-kind gift!
