From his site:

He works mostly in pastels, using layering and fixatives to gain depth to his still lifes and landscapes. His subject matter is of the trees and fields of New England, their shadows and textures being endlessly fascinating to him. In his still lives, the themes of reflective objects and fruit occur often. Emmett studied art at Manhattanville College, achieving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in just 2 years of accelerated study. His home is shared with his wife, Patricia, who is also his Representative, as well as a Siamese cat named Fiona and a Shetland Sheepdog, Sydney.
