Meet the Artist: Emily Yosway Herr

Emily Herr is a Richmond native who creates custom hand-painted murals at home and on the road under the name HerrSuite. She’s been painting professionally for 10 years, specializing in careful context-based design with bright imagery. Self-employed since graduation from VCU, she works full-time as a muralist in clients’ homes, businesses, and public spaces.

Her ambitious personal projects guide the shape of her client work- most notably designing and building a mobile artist studio, and then launching a traveling mural project called “Girls! Girls! Girls!” to better represent women in public art.
