HEY, I'M EMMA!
I'm the creator and instructor at Paint Wild and I'm SO EXCITED you're here! I've been deeply obsessed with animals since I was an embryo, and after a couple years of teaching watercolour they were aaaaaall I wanted to paint!
The medium and the muse have several parallels: watercolour can also be wild with a mind of its own. It can grab your attention, bring you back to the present moment, and make you ✨feel✨ something. And just like my dog who I accidentally taught to respond to 3 commands for 'speak' - watercolour can be tamed!
You've just gotta learn how.
My approach to watercolour is what sets Paint Wild apart: a simple set of supplies, consistency to skyrocket your skills, and a dangerous amount of fun. I'll show you how to mix any colour from the primaries, provide regular approachable tutorials to keep you inspired and learning, and take absolutely nothing except your growth seriously.
If you think you might want to start watercolor, but you are completely overwhelmed, this is the way to go! Emma breaks everything down to the very basics and has a great sense of humor as she goes. Emma made me feel like I could tackle any watercolor project I might want to do and I totally loved having so much fun while growing through this academy.

If you want to learn watercolor, I would not hesitate to join the Academy. In just a few months, I can see such an improvement in my skills. Water control has always been a challenge for me, but after going through the Techniques 101 section, I had a light bulb moment. Emma explains and demonstrates what we want to see - and also what it looks like when things go sideways and how to recover. Which, as a beginner, is so key!
____ Jade K
Investing in the Academy was an easy choice to make. I love that I have access to so much amazing content and Emma breaks everything down so clearly in the classes in such a way that I was able to paint things I never imagined I could. Plus, she is super dependable and supportive. Everything you need to know about watercolour is right here.
____ Aica A
I can't recommend Emma enough as a teacher. She is so good at breaking down the steps of each project so that what seemed impossible actually turns out to be possible. And Color Theory 101 is a fantastic beginner class to learn about mixing many colors from the three primaries.
____ Victoria W
Emma’s Academy will be the best thing you’ve ever done to learn about watercolors! Not only will you learn the very, very basics if you are just beginning, you’ll progress step by step and learn things you didn’t know you missed if you are a bit more experienced. Things you wondered about and things you never even imagined! It’s all there. It’s all carefully explained. This is as complete as it gets AND it’s not tedious. It’s FUN!
