We create alchemical mixed media art, photographs, installations, and experiences rooted in play and designed to inspire curiosity, creativity, self respect, and authentic expression.

Artist Statement for Lulu McPharlin, founder of Emerge EXP

I’ve always had a deep desire to create aesthetic experiences that:

  • Inspire people to explore and value themselves
  • Encourage people to open their minds to multiple possibilities
  • Give people permission to let go of their “shoulds”
  • Create a safe space for people to play

The mediums I typically work in are collage, photography, acrylic paint, installation, social experimentation, and experience design. With a background in mental health therapy and coaching, I use art as a tool for empowering and inspiring people, particularly women, and for building and nurturing creative communities.

Ways we can work together

  • Creating personal photos with composite and double exposure elements for magical customization
  • Retreat and event photography- documentary style with unique composites and double exposures
  • Multi-sensory aesthetic events or installations for experiential marketing or community building
