Hi, my name is Emily. I live in the glorious glitter and shame that is Las Vegas, Nevada. During the day, I work for an event technology company crafting presentations that sell the dream; not mine, but someone else’s. I believe that anyone can be creative or have great ideas, but expressing them... well, that's where I come in. I'd like to think that being an artist is similar to being a detective or psychic. Learning what the client wants (and needs) can be a challenging task, and creating the solution can be the greatest reward.
Like many artists, I started at a young age. There was no limit to what could be art. Many a canvas, floor, and wall were met with paint. Despite the mess made in the pursuit of art, my family encouraged me to apply for The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts.
There I learned to paint with a variety of classical media, though I feel the greatest lesson was learning to accept and contribute meaningful criticism. My efforts were rewarded when I received credit for my AP Studio Art 2D design portfolio.
Eventually I went back to school and attended The Art Institute of Las Vegas. Within three years, I received my Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design as well as “Best in Show” for the graduating class portfolio show. I’ve since worked for a wedding photography studio, a graphic design agency, and an event technology company.
During the day, I craft presentations selling the dream. During the night, I create my own—Some of them live here.
