Copy of About Payal Emery, the Artistic Nurse
Payal Emery, professional artist and family nurse practitioner, has blended her worlds together to create the Artistic Nurse. Painting unique, powerful, colorful artwork has become her passion, and her passion has helped others find their own inspiration and spread their joy. Art and creativity can free voices.
Payal has always had a love for art and science and animals. She explored various science and health fields, and then started working as a Transplant Nurse with an incredible team at Yale New Haven Hospital. While working as a nurse, she went to school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Now as a Nurse Practitioner, Payal helps heal patients, physically, emotionally, and mentally, learning about many unique individual situations, and how self-care and stress management can truly help with healing.
Her skills as an Artist and Creative have helped her find creative solutions to helping people.
As soon as she is home from working as a Nurse Practitioner or whenever her children are napping or at school, she immerses herself in her art studio. It provides her a place of healing, to de-stress, to express all inside her onto the canvas. She creates original artwork, pet portraits, healing art, and much more for others in her studio.
She has always loved art, especially since she fell in love with it through her elementary school art teacher, and then it was re-kindled when her college roommate brought out acrylic paints and canvases, and her love for painting was born!
Since then she has always created art in different ways, and recently her dream of going to Art School finally came true through the Milan Art Institute. Through this school, she found her true purpose, helping give voice to those who feel their voice isn't heard.
She also takes unique artwork commissions including beautiful pet portrait commissions.
She uses her healing experience as a nurse and her creative experience as an artist to blend a world of creative healing that gets transformed onto the canvas and in turn transforms her, and gives inspiration and healing to others.
She is passionate about helping to empower others to be their most awesome selves, so people can spread their magic, and change the world.
It is her passion that people can become happier and more joyful and calmer through tapping into and exploring their deeper more authentic selves.
Using the creative process, we all can make art, and feel happier.
She is a mother of two creative, wild, unique, animated sons! She is married to her Jamaican husband who is similar to her but also her polar opposite in many ways so it is quite an adventure together! Payal and her family are always dancing and finding fun ways to be creative with games, obstacle courses, art, cooking and more!
Payal had an American Eskimo and Pitbull, two dogs who were her loves of her life, and she misses them deeply. She understands that bond with one's fur soulmates and expresses those feelings when she creates her pet portrait commissions.
Payal's younger son, Taj, has autism and she is a passionate advocate for his healing. From inflexibility, to speech delay, to lack of communication, to major meltdowns, it has been a very huge challenge. Payal and her family have worked very hard every day playing with him, talking with him, helping him open up, and finding therapists who really connect with him.
Her two sons love being in the art studio!! They express themselves so freely and just let it go. It has provided so much inspiration for her, and has helped her let go of imperfection and feel more free and as well.
Her older son Jai currently loves recreating Payal's artworks in his own unique way. He loves dancing and painting! He says, "I love using my imagination to create whatever I want."
Her sons create their own art as well and also help create backgrounds for a lot of her artworks. They both created this artwork below. They were both so free and just let loose their colors and brushstrokes together. Taj even used his truck to wheel the paint on the canvas.
Payal plans to create Online Art for Healing and Empowerment classes. She wants to continue to use her artwork for change. She truly believes others can heal profoundly from art as well.
Payal's vision is to create joyful and inspirational artworks that speak to the soul and inspire people to pursue creative expression in their own way.

She loves to read and learn more about her themes in her paintings, such as Prince and his songs, how an animal lives in its habitat, the themes that a hero is passionate about or more, and incorporates that into her art.
She also listens to the music of an artist, while painting it and it weaves Into the artwork the songs in a deeper way!! And she has a lot of fun while painting which is expressed in the joyful colors.
