EMILY MARTIN is an installation artist, weaver, textile designer, and educator currently working out of Long Island, NY. Drawing inspiration from things like rotting wood, moss growing on tree bark, or cracks in the sidewalk, Martin strives to create multimedia work that incorporates mundane, natural textures in a new context by both abstracting its qualities and highlighting the relationship between pattern and color. Emily is passionate about sharing her love of color, texture, pattern, and textiles with others. When Emily is not in her studio, she can be found hiking and enjoying nature while gathering more inspiration.
