Emily is a fine artist and science illustrator from Tybee Island, GA. In 2016 she graduated with a studio art degree from Geogria College and State University, and went on to receive a graduate certificate in science illustration from California State University, Monterey Bay in 2017. She uses this field as a way to communicate scientific concepts and to connect the two worlds of science and art. She grew up on a barrier island on the coast of Georgia and had an interest in both art and natural sciences from a young age, especially as it related to her home by the sea.

Emily currently lives and works in Anchorage, Alaska where she completed an internship with the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center illustrating the Yakutat Tlingit people from the last 1000 years.
