Originally from Boston, MA, now based in Brooklyn, NY, Emily/Em is a dedicated visual artist emerging in the art world. Art has played a role in her life since childhood, as her initial struggles with speech and dyslexia led her to use visual devices for expression beyond language. During her undergraduate, Emily learned under Matt Saunders and Annette Lemieux, exploring various mediums in studio art. Throughout her artistic career Emily has experimented with a range of materials from silkscreen to graphic design with a core focus on painting and illustration. Her recent work places the female figure in landscapes that play with time and space, approaching femininity as both the subjective and the objective, the self and the other. This work on ‘female surrealism’ was recently on display at Buckham Gallery’s Disrupted Realism exhibition and featured in various virtual exhibitions during the height of the pandemic. Emily’s 2019 series, ‘altered states’ was selected for the Flagler County Art League’s Faces & Figures juried exhibition, published in The Book of Art publication, and displayed in Emotions, an international online exhibition by Gallerium. In 2021, Emily worked alongside Santa Fe based artist Brad Smith, showcasing her work in his gallery on Canyon Road.
