About the Artist

Emily’s love of creating embroidered drawings began with an unconventional drawing assignment while pursuing her Fine Arts degree from Adelphi University. Upon graduating, she decided to continue her studies and earned a Masters in Art Education from New York University- the prelude to a 9-year teaching career. While teaching, she continued to create artwork after school. In 2022, she decided to leave teaching to pursue her passion to create art full-time. Inspired by the sweet and warm moments of all kinds of relationships, her work is often described as tender and intricate.
Emily resides in Queens, NY with her husband and cats, Pluto and Kiko.
