Emma Hartman is a visual artist and painting professor working in Greenville, SC. She received her undergraduate degree in Studio Art from Bob Jones University and pursued an MFA in painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, GA, graduating with honors in 2018.
Hartman’s work explores her own faith journey, acting in legacy of the Western world's inheritance of religious art. Realized on canvas and wood panel, her current body of work features acrylic and oil images synthesizing contemporary palettes and brushwork with Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque motifs. Her pieces have been widely exhibited, including the Palazzo Velli Expo in Rome, San Diego’s False Cast Gallery, and Povos Chicago, as well as several online exhibitions like Young Space’s juried show Where We Once Were Someone and I Like Your Work’s Drowned Neon Rose.
When she’s not in her studio, Hartman teaches various painting and drawing courses at Bob Jones University and periodically curates for Ground Level Gallery at Leaf Institute in Greenville, SC.
