Hi my name is Em! I'm an illustrator, writer and, educator from Baltimore, Maryland. I'm currently working on my MFA in Illustration Practice and certificate for collegiate teaching at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Prior to graduate school, I obtained a BFA in illustration with a concentration in Book Arts from MICA as well.

The work you see here is from my deep love for the spiritual and the fantastical, describing mysteries that are often indescribable by language alone. 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.
Currently seeking a publishing agent, let's make something together!
