Emily Brodrick grew up in 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 knitted and crocheted works are often repetitive, vibrantly colorful and feel organic. With them, she explores themes such as gender stereotypes, craft traditions, functionality and play. From 2014-16 she worked as an after school art specialist at Maud Morgan Visual Art Center in Cambridge, MA. In the fall of 2016 she was the curatorial intern at Gallery 263 in Cambridge. Recently, she has decided to dedicate her working hours to her Etsy business, Emily’s Living Rainbows. Emily’s work has been included in exhibitions throughout Massachusetts, as well as New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Her most recent solo exhibition, Feminine Habitat, was in the summer of 2016 at Groundwork in New Bedford, MA.
