A Chicago native, Emmy has always been inspired by her hometown city’s unique blend of style, story, and character, which has served as a backdrop and canvas throughout much of her creative career.

Emmy kickstarted her career with a BFA in visual communications from the Illinois Institute of Art, later parlaying it into a creative position in advertising at one of Chicago’s marquee agencies. There she earned her commercial stripes in branding and packaging before breaking away to pursue work as an independent artist. She’s since spent the past decade adorning public spaces across Chicago and beyond while continuing to nurture her studio practice.

There she earned her commercial stripes in branding and packaging before breaking away to pursue work as an independent artist. She’s since spent the past decade adorning public spaces across Chicago and beyond while continuing to nurture her studio practice. And with current work that includes everything from illustration, lettering, and canvas work to branding, packaging, and murals, she continues to evolve both her mediums and methods.

United, we are building a stronger, more equitable Chicago region.
