Emily Eve Weinstein
oils, mixed media & book making.
This is the eighth year of my 25-yr Handmade Book series. The annual editions contain my ongoing autobiography illustrated with every image I completed within the year. The books range dramatically in format from perfect bound, to accordion, to a goody box and often repurposed materials are used in their creation. The 25-year project is available by subscription or individual copies direct from my studio. I make fifty copies year.
Painting outdoors in oils has been my most enduring art form. When weather allows on full moon nights I paint with the aid of a headlamp. Capturing presence of place I find the most rewarding; being out in nature. Due to discovering my craft-side through bookmaking I make paper for the printmaking I’m currently doing. I work with naturalistic imagery, printing multiple layers, rendering a greater sense of depth. Printmaking adds an element of surprise, which I find exhilarating.
For over forty years Emily Eve Weinstein has made a living exclusively through her art. She originated Murals-by-Many and Pet & People Portraiture in the eighties. Weinstein was employed for the last two years of the NC artist-in-residence program bringing art to under-served communities. Beau Soleil Publishers discovered the artist when she was painting her epic full moon series. Four art gift books of Weinstein’s work has been published and are available internationally.
Weinstein’s first manuscript was written during her three-year sojourn living in a van, painting the unwinding scenery of America and Canada. Weinstein’s formal art education took place outside London, a foundation year in Paris and she received her bachelors degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. Both her commissioned work and fine art can be found in hundreds of collections.
In the last decade she has been phasing out the commissioned work to create more fine art and to focus on the 25-yr Handmade Book series. Both Weinstein’s paintings and books can be found locally at NC Craft Gallery, Bull City Fine Art, Horse & Buggy Press and the Joyful Jewel.
