A bit about me...
I’m Emma Killeen, a graduate from the Penny Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My passion for art started as a child painting fruit in my grandmother’s home studio and has evolved to become the way I solve problems, analyze issues, and try to determine my place in the world. Much of my art deals with themes of the female body, body image, and the way humans interact with the environment. I use a mix of 2D mediums, combining drawing, photography, painting, collage, and printmaking to create layered compositions that embrace my love of color, pattern, and texture.
In the past year I have begun to seriously pursue my ideas
within the realm of graphic design. After interning at Bark Design in Chicago last summer and heading PR and Marketing for my sorority, I enrolled in a graphic design program at Central Saint Martin’s in London for a semester. Studying abroad was an exciting and challenging experience, personally and artistically. The focus of
the program was as much on observation as it was production.
As a result, I fell in love with London and it’s vibrant scene, while realizing the adaptability and range that graphic design provides
for an artist like me. I’m excited to integrate these new skills and experiences into my work.
