Emily Walk is a local artist living in Somerville and specializing in hand-drawn maps and digital artwork. Born in Concord, MA, she loved to draw pirate maps as a little girl and is inspired by these nostalgic memories in current work. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Colgate University and her Master of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute. Her architecture training also informs her work, as she brings detailed attention to historic buildings and landmarks. The artwork on display features everything from local neighborhoods to fantastical locations. She uses black tea to stain paper by hand, incorporating watercolors to bring out the natural landscape. All intricate details are drawn in pen.
