Senior Designer Emily sets the standard for simplistic whimsy. She’s a modern-day granny with her oversized sweaters and love of crocheting. Yet, this “old lady at heart” exudes an artful aura from her visually linguistic poetry to her conceptually driven art she exhibits both across the country and internationally.
While many of Emily’s interests are opposing by nature, they all stem from her natural knack to tap into different dimensions of creativity—which tend to have an omen of humor and awkwardness to them. This perpetual learner believes that with the right amount of confidence, you have the potential to build any skillset.
Her focus in the arts evolved from writing to graphic design because of her interest in the intersection of art and technology. To her, what good are 3-D printing, custom-made electronics, and interactive programs like C++, Python and Linux without a creative touch to make the technologies sing?
For Emily, art is constant so there’s always something new for her to dabble in. Her latest venture? Mastering the art of riding her bike on the bustling streets of DC.
