The Lane Memorial Library’s Artist of the Month is Emily Kalina, who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2003 with a degree in illustration and immediately entered the gallery world, where she has exhibited and sold her signature style of layered, textured, and patterned watercolors. Using her watercolors as a basis for her prints, she combines her sharp eye for trends with an innate sense of color and style to produce vibrant designs. Kalina transformed her 14 years of layered and textured watercolors into bestselling scarves and a variety of products for Nine West Dress, Michael Kors, Barney’s New York, Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Elie Tahari, Nordstrom, Target and TJX. You can view her artwork during the month of August at Lane Memorial Library in Hampton.
