Who Is Oddball?
Hey there! My name is Emma and I’ve been passionate about art & the act of creativity for as long as I can remember.
I'm a Canadian abstract artist currently based in Montréal, Canada.
In my art, I love the use of bright and bold colour palettes, squiggly and curvy lines, and repetitive symbols that emerge as I create (commonly eyes, numbers, and words). I like to explore the themes of the circularity of life, self-perception, identity, trauma, mental illness, womanhood, collective lived history, living in a troubling society, and the interconnections between all existing things and systems.
I'm always excited to start new projects, and I hope that you either engage with my art, or that we can work together creatively!
The Oddball's Story
The Oddball began as a simple abstract symbol that I began drawing over and over because something about it captured me: a circle with a line through it. It felt simple but mysterious, and I was determined to attribute some meaning to it.
Years later, the Oddball, as it stands, has become a symbol that distills the essence of myself and my art; the circle representing the cycles of life, which I explore frequently in my art, and the abrupt lines running through it representing the unexpected and a break from the norm.
The Oddball philosophy is to break the rules, explore new mediums, and make mistakes.

Let's work together!
I'm a multi-disciplined artist, and I'd love to be your creative partner in any endeavour, whether it's custom abstract acrylic painting, event photography or photoshoots, high quality illustrations, and anything else your imagination desires.
