Emily Brodrick grew up on the south fork of Long Island, New York. She received her BA from Hampshire College in 2014 where her study of fiber art culminated in a solo show titled Why Color Makes Me Giggle. Her multi-media works are often highly detailed, vibrantly colorful and feel organic. With them, she explores themes such as gender stereotypes, craft traditions, natural forms and play. From 2014-16 she worked as an after school art specialist at Maud Morgan Visual Art Center in Cambridge and in the fall of 2016 she was the curatorial intern at Gallery 263 in Cambridge. From 2017-2018 she was the office management and social media intern at Now + There in Boston and now she runs her own business - Living Rainbows Fiber Co, a handmade yarn and spinning fiber company. All the while she has continued her art practice and Emily’s work has been included in exhibitions throughout Massachusetts, as well as New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine and Maryland. Her most recent solo exhibition, Feminine Habitat, was in the summer of 2016 at Groundwork in New Bedford, MA.
