Emilie Patteson is a contemporary artist, practicing mainly in glass and illustration. She grew up in Orange, NSW, and moved to Canberra in 2009 to study Glass at the Australian National University. She graduated with Honours in 2012. Emilie now bases her practice from a studio at the Canberra Glassworks.
Emilie explores themes of nature and life cycles through her work, with a particular focus on tiny details that often are overlooked. She is interested in using these details to juxtapose life and death, and growth and decay, to examine the fleetingness of life.
