About the speaker
Emily Herr is a Richmond native who creates custom hand-painted murals at home and on the road under the name HerrSuite.
She’s been painting walls for 12 years, with a portfolio now just shy of 100 walls. Specializing in careful context-based design with bright illustrative imagery, Emily approaches each new setting as an exploration of physical space and storytelling.
Self-employed since graduation from VCU, she pursues continuing education in the form of workshops and painting trips across the US and abroad, as well as leading the non-profit RVA Makers since 2017.
In lieu of free time or healthy habits, she initiates ambitious projects that guide the shape of her client work - most recently designing and building a mobile artist studio, and then launching a traveling mural project called “Girls! Girls! Girls!” to better represent womxn in public art.
