ABOUT

Emily Blom is a Hobart based artist whose work explores notions of memory, history and our relationship to the past. Having completed her Major in Printmaking at the University of Tasmania, Emily’s work is a blend of the traditional and contemporary. Utilising printmaking techniques combined with painting, textiles, collage and photography, she creates multi-layered, hybrid works reflective of our experience in the everyday.

 

Emily is represented by Handmark.
