American painter Emma Childs was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, where she lives and works today. Childs graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) with a BFA in General Fine Arts. She has participated in an artist residency at Arts Warehouse in Delray Beach, Florida, and is currently a resident at School 33 Art Center in Baltimore. 
Childs’ work is held in several public and private collections in Baltimore, Washington DC, New York, and Los Angeles. She is represented by Rhodes Contemporary in London, UK, and Hidell Brooks Gallery in Charlotte, NC. 

In this current body of work, Emma Childs has been developing a language of painting that allows her to explore the way we exist in the world we build around us. Childs’ work explores moments of chaos and mundanity, freedom and containment, isolation and contact. She is interested in the ability of a work to evoke an energetically emotional response from the viewer as well as creating objects that physically interact with their environment, to walk a line between creating something self-contained as well as reaching outward.
