EMILY TEN RAA graduated from UWA in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts (Literature and Art History) degree, and from Edith Cowan University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Contemporary Visual Arts. At ECU she won the Louise Macfee Painting Award, and also the 'cream 4' emerging artist award by emerge ART space.
Emily is also part owner of The Seasonal Brewing Company in Maylands. At the venue, she displays artworks by local Perth artists, and displays are changed roughly every season. She believes that the art scene can be insular and that people - even those who would like to know more about the visual arts - may not make the time to visit galleries. In the brewery, she hopes to forge a connection between the general public and professional art scene.
