Raised in Portland, Oregon, you’ll most likely find Emily Cress sipping a large coffee in a cafe. When not making art she enjoys gardening and hanging out with her corgi. She grew up surrounded by nature and its influence continues to inspire her every day. She graduated Pacific Northwest College of Art with a Bachelors in Fine Arts in 2018.

Her artistic voice is highly influenced by a combination of surrealism, tattoos, and contemporary illustration. She is drawn towards symbolism as a way to express her experiences and empower others. Her dream is to use art as a way to help others in the community. Always looking to collaborate with other creatives!
