Another example of Emily Sophia’s Faux Finish work, this restoration project was completed on a private residence in Olde City, Philadelphia.
We continue our week of works by Emily Sophia Van Binsbergen with “Mandela.” This is an 8′ by 8′ restaurant installation piece done for Mantra, in Philadelphia.
Emily Sophia Van Binsbergen, designer, studied at Moore College of Art and Frudakis Academy of the Fine Arts with Master Sculptor Evangelos Frudakis in Philadelphia, PA.
Her passion for the old master classics, plein air landscape and the arts in general has led to numerous portrait commissions and Fine Art exhibitions, as well as her career as an expert faux finish painter, muralist, and interior designer.
Emily Sophia’s work has been exhibited for over 20 years by the most discriminating residential and commercial owners, restaurants, theaters, and boutiques including Mantra Restaurant, The Warwick Hotel, and Plays and Players Theater in Philadelphia; La Petite Classic Boutique in Bethesda, MD, and the Swiss Embassy in Washington D.C.
For each of the next seven days we’ll be posting a variety of Emily’s works here and on the drunkenmermaid.com facebook page. Today’s image is Renaissance Self-Portrait, which Emily painted in 1989.
