Emily Isaacson (1975- )
Emily Isaacson began creating photography exhibits in 2004, and was inducted into Professional Photographers of British Columbia (PPABC) in 2009 and Cambridge Who's Who in 2011. Isaacson specializes in analog photography in both colour and black & white. Her yearly exhibits since 2005 are all viewed online through our exhibitions page, and she did a solo exhibit in 2010 at the MAC Gallery in Mission, B.C.
Emily Isaacson was born in Windsor, Ontario and grew up in Victoria, B.C. Canada. She was educated at Bastyr University in Seattle, and is now nutritionist and director of The Wild Lily Institute in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. Isaacson is a Canadian poet and author with 15 books published. She participates actively in the arts. She served on the Mission Arts Council board of directors for three years (2007-10) as well as the Fraser Valley Poets Society (2012-13, 2018-20) .
Emily Isaacson’s classic photography depicts the countryside and landscapes of the Fraser Valley and rural British Columbia. Her book spanning her portfolio of four years, released as a second edition in 2015, is entitled Voetelle. She can usually be found out in the open field or roadsides of the world doing a photo shoot.
The Clay Road Gallery was founded in 2015 to exhibit Emily's art, and scenic landscape photography. Isaacson enjoys the grain of natural, non-computer enhanced analog art medium, and was once found walking barefoot in the snow to capture a better photograph. Voetelle Art & Design multimedia sites for the Wild Lily Institute now have over 2 million visits from over 45 countries. Voetelle is truly the art behind the Institute.
Isaacson's select poetry is available to purchase at the Wild Lily Institute bookstore.
