Welcome to my world… and thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoy the tour…
I was born in France and moved to California in 2000. I started showing my work in solo shows in 1990 and spent many years mastering watercolors.
In 2010 I started working on much larger pieces using water mixable oils, on canvas and on wood panels, it was an epiphany! The flexibility and the possibilities in size this new medium offered just enchanted me! Today I still enjoy using watercolors for miniatures and small works, while reveling in the lushness of oils on larger works.
Behind every piece, there is an intention to uplift and comfort you. I design spacious and benevolent paintings as quantum portals to harmony.
Their relaxing effect empowers and nurtures the viewer at a deep level, where serene clarity transcends circumstances.
The secret resides in crafting each painting as a visual meditation that helps quieten mind chatter and expand consciousness, giving a means to the viewers to reconnect with their innate soul-seated wellness.
Large and small, they have won the hearts of private collectors and art lovers from San Francisco Bay to Asia, Brazil and Europe.
Don’t take my word for it: immerse yourself in my work and experience the wonderful effect of my paintings on your own state of being.
When you purchase my work, over 4% of it goes to charities, so you can feel good about that too!
For over 7 years I owned and ran my Blissful Gallery in Stinson Beach, prior to COVID-19. It was a great success and a joyful experience during which I learned a lot.
Though I much enjoyed the personal meetings and special time with clients, I also appreciate the freedom and flexibility my virtual gallery online gives me now.

Kind Words from Fans and Collectors
Meg K. CA
“I was totally transported by the peacefulness of your paintings. The use of space, viewing the sky and clouds allowed me to quiet myself and turn inward to a place of tranquility. I can still see it in my mind’s eye and find myself there.”
“I’ve displayed your paintings: they are the first thing I see every morning when I wake up. They help me start my day with a smile!”
“…I enter the engaging enlightenment of the Blissful Gallery, and just that, bliss. The walls and table tops are covered with paintings that have captured a moment in time. I am drawn into one moment after another. The Gallery, its keeper and creator of mesmerizing moments in time, Emmeline Craig, keep calling me back…”
Nickie Hart (Musician Artist) UK
“When I first came across Emmeline’s pictures I was struck by the freedom and peace they conveyed. Qualities that I had hitherto not come across in art. They certainly have a spiritual edge to them…”

“Emmeline’s creativity is whimsical, thoughtful, and like a breath of fresh air. I have her work on display in my studio to remind me that joy can be found absolutely everywhere.”
Marv Z. Executive Coach
“Emmeline’s work is WONDERFUL! We own a number of her watercolors. Emmeline also created the sleeve for one of my wife’s CDs — truly gorgeous. And Emmeline painted a customized, surprise portrait (based on some photos) of my wife for her birthday — a truly terrific gift. My highest recommendation.”
