Emily Grace Lowe was born and raised in midcoast Maine where her imagination was shaped by countless hours exploring the tide pools, granite shoreline and moss-draped spruce forests surrounding her home in Owls Head. She graduated with honors from Maine College of Art in 2000 with a BFA in Photography. Shortly after college her love for nature led her out of the darkroom and into the world of gardening. While traveling, Lowe was introduced to Biodynamic Agriculture — an experience which opened her eyes to the interconnections between soil, plants, humans and the cosmos, and left a deep impression in her heart. Upon returning to Maine this passion steered her toward almost 10 years of farming and gardening in the Midcoast region, tending to gourmet vegetables, fruits, flowers and livestock. What began with five years as the head gardener at Primo Restaurant culminated in running her own small-scale operation, Birdsong Farm, in Owls Head.
Lowe began studying with The Unseen Hand in 2012, a school dedicated to the preservation of Taoist alchemical medicine, and the cultivation of the heart through a mystical tradition of the sacred feminine. In 2018 she was struck by the realization that she had lost touch with the artist she had always been, and her relationship to creating art was rekindled; the training, cultivation and spiritual practices she had been immersed in awakened a seed which had lain dormant in her for many years. She began painting and drawing, and in the fall of 2021 she left her position at a family business to dedicate more time to her own work. She continues her training in the School of 3 Lights, housed within The Unseen Hand, a school for the training of the Muse itself — a training which calls to the soul of the artist to reach toward the light of humanity and the Earth in this time of unprecedented planetary crises. She currently lives and works in Thomaston, Maine, on the unceded homeland of the Wabanaki.
