Endlessly inspired by her search for charm in the everyday, Emily’s pattern driven work reflects her training in textile design from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Aside from book illustration, her gouache paintings have been applied to product like bedding, clothing, fabric, dishes, rugs, toys and wallpaper.
Emily lives in the Hudson Valley, just north of NYC, where her rural surroundings inform much of her work. Her favorite things include perusing flea markets, making friends with wildflowers and traveling to new places both near and far. Her sketchbook is always in tow, just in case she finds a bug that needs its portrait painted or an interior that has a story to share.
