Sean Emery the artist

In his art

Sean studied Commercial Art in College but was always looking for something more “immediate”. Thus he took some acting and mime which led to filling out an application for Ringling Brother’s and Barnum and Bailey’s Circus. Surprisingly he was accepted thus began a new journey.


Sean sees his art skills the same as using power tools. It is a skill he can access and paint costumes for his wife Meg’s aerial performers at Xelias Aerial Arts Studio. Or paint his own props and banners. Even the chairs at Xelias are Sean’s handy-work. Mainly using acrylic and also airbrush. Sean still likes dragging a squirrel hair brush the best.
