Being different is a superpower

Hi! I’m Emily, an illustrator, a mom, a wife, and a weirdo.
I grew up in upstate NY and spent summers on the Maryland coast where most of my family lives. I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember, but for a while before going to art school I wanted to be a botanist or a marine biologist. I ultimately studied animation at RISD, and on my way to California to work for Pixar (still my pie-in-the-sky dream job) I accidentally settled down in Tucson, Arizona.
I worked as a bartender, an artist at Lisa Frank, and then for 12 years as a graphic designer. In 2019 I quit my job to be a full time independent artist. I am a freelance designer, art director and illustrator in addition to owning this shop.
I feel deeply connected to nature and the strange and unusual. I love insects, rocks, trees and fungi- the oldest among us.
The odd bird is unique, awkward, elegant, elusive and always does her own thing. Being different is a superpower.
