Featured Artist: EMILY MADDIGAN

When referring to “art” Emily speaks about “a world of cultural belief systems, symbolism and craft.” Using damaged taxidermy and sculpting from foam, Emily creates half animal, half human figures among a scope of characters. Her mother and grandmother nurtured her by having crafts material around, instilling in her the values of art-making from childhood. Stitching parts and pieces of mammals and furry animals, she explains, “the process is different for each one.”
