About Emma Laus

Emma Ziporah Laus has always loved reading, drawing, and acting out stories. In February 2014, she first became deeply interested in the presidents after looking through a book of presidential portraits. Her curiosity was sparked. She began borrowing books from the library and absorbed stories and details about the presidents and their families, memorizing the names of all the first ladies. On President’s Day of that year, inspired by the book of portraits, Emma and her parents and family friends all tried their hands at creating their own presidential portraits. Emma’s portraits stole the show: her portraits of Teddy Roosevelt, Grover Cleveland and Millard Fillmore introduced new shades and angles to old faces. Portraits of Eleanor and Edith Roosevelt soon followed. In 2015, she was commissioned by her 4th Grade teacher to paint portraits of all the presidents who were born in Ohio.
“Over time, as her control over her materials and aesthetic evolves, so too do the portraits. She has developed opinions about all the presidents, and chooses who to paint according to how she feels about them.”
