Emilie Van Camp founder and artist behind Iya Gallery creates minimal and abstract watercolour and ink paintings and prints inspired by wabi-sabi aesthetics: simplicity and tranquillity. Her artworks reflect a meditative flow state.

Iya Gallery's ink and watercolour artworks reflect a meditative flow state of mind that incites reflection and deeper connections with one's emotions and energy.

This slow creative process allows Emilie to find calmness and serenity within herself that she hopes will transpire onto each of her pieces.

Art can be so powerful, it can make us feel at home, safe, inspired, connected - with ourselves and others - it can also help ground oneself into the present moment, or make one's mind temporarily escape somewhere else.

Emilie uses either payne's grey or indigo watercolours and black ink for her work.
