When the art of printmaking found Emily Drew she never knew she could love a discipline so much.
From the source:
Emily Drew Mash is a prolific artist, teacher and mother of three. She received her BFA from Wake Forest University with a concentration in printmaking. Her work is part of the permanent collection of Wake Forest University. She was an exhibiting member of Artworks Gallery in WS, NC for several years before starting a family.
Currently, she teaches at Sawtooth, and is a regular teacher with Healing through the Arts, a non-profit that provides creative opportunities for current cancer patients and their caregivers. She also leads an annual art camp for kids during the summer.
In 2018, she launched her own handmade leather goods business which can be found at UrbnGrl, Sunnyside Mercantile, Sawtooth Gift Shop, and local Pop-Ups. When she isn’t designing handcrafted leather goods or pattern designs, she enjoys painting in watercolor, often during her children’s nap time.
“I was born with a crayon in my hand. I have always loved to create and now I am so blessed to share my creations with others. My work is informed by this journey we call life, the trials and the blessings, and intends to offer truth and beauty.”
In 2009 I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. During that time, spending time creating in the studio was therapy for me. I could express my thoughts and feelings in images much easier than with words. Once I was in remission I knew my life’s calling was to speak with pictures. My work comes from a place of hope and goodness. I choose to portray images that offer a spark of hope, joy, peace, or simply beauty to others. Learn more about my journey as a cancer survivor below.
