Hi my name is Em! I'm an illustrator, writer and, educator from Baltimore, Maryland. I have an BFA in Illustration with a concentration in Book Arts, an MFA in Illustration Practice with an emphasis in Critical Studies, and a Certificate for College Teaching of Art all from Maryland Institute College of Art.
The work you see here is from my deep love for the spiritual and the fantastical. My passion for making comes from an interest in the western historical representations of faith and spiritual culture, finding inspiration in religious iconography, architecture, manuscripts, reliquaries, and stories that span generations and give meaning to mystery.
I work as a designer at Duopress Books, a designer at CHARM: voices of Baltimore youth, and a professor of drawing and design at Northern Virginia Community College, in addition to crafting my own worlds and stories.
