Emily C-D (b. 1983) is an illustrator, muralist, and collager of constructions made with the things other people throw away. Her work aims to cultivate wonder and respect for our living world, be it directly communicated through the subject matter of a piece, or more metaphorically understood through her choice of materials.
By finding color, rhythm, and beauty in forgotten objects and spaces, Emilys art is a celebration of the chaotic, the complex, and the unexpected. She creates fun, interactive projects that blur the line between spectator and participant.
Originally from Maryland and based in Mexico, Emily has worked with diverse communities on both sides of the border to transform walls, floors, fences, bridges, and rivers. She currently lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with her son.
