Tootsie Emin's Studio
Artist Tootsie Emin concentrates on painting images that will allow the viewer to reminisce on the past or simply make comparison to the present. She finds it rewarding to try various techniques and to have them work and is comfortable working in mediums in oil acrylic and water color.
“Good art happens; it’s a natural thing regardless of the background you paint on it. I paint what I love and I hope people love what I paint.”
How did you start painting?
I began painting mainly to fill in the empty nest syndrome, after raising 6 children and retiring from the family business (Fred Emin Grocery Ltd.). As a self-taught artist, I studied with many international instructors. I have developed a loyal clientele with many local and international collectors having pieces in both private and corporate collections.
Where do you sell your paintings?
I sell my paintings from my home studio, and galleries and restaurants throughout Nova Scotia. I also continue to show my work in group and solo exhibits.
What's your favourite thing about being a business owner?
I enjoy being my own boss and having control over my workplace. I also enjoy meeting people from around the world. I like to explore mediums, techniques and the personal artistic journey. Presently, I’m giving painting parties. If interested, please contact my studio at 902-742-4550.
