Emie is a mixed-media artist, photographer, choreographer, and educator. She has always been an artist, dancing and creating since she could walk. Trained as a modern dancer, Emie graduated with a B.A. in Dance/Theatre Arts from Dickinson College, where she won the Emil R. and Tamar Weiss Prize in Creative Arts. After graduating, she lived and worked in NYC for 6 years in the arts, arts administration, and fundraising.

She has exhibited her mixed-media pieces in Brooklyn, NY, the Delaware Art Museum, and the Art Trust. She has presented her choreographic works at venues including the Delaware Art Museum, Brandywine River Museum, Triskelion Arts, the EstroGenius Festival, Dixon Place, and the Bowery Poetry Club.

She has taught workshops in art and dance at the Delaware Art Museum, Brandywine River Museum, the Girls Can Do Anything! 2019 Conference, Movement Research,  the Community Art Center, Main Line Arts Center, Makers Off Main, Delaware Institute for the Arts in Education, and Blue Jar Studio, among many others.  

At the center of her work is her love for nature, movement, and the color blue. She is passionate about sharing her creative practices as a teaching artist; she believes deeply in the importance of mental health awareness, increasing the  mind-body connection, and building community through 2D and 3D processes.

In spring of 2021, Emie  participated in the Delaware Creative Aging professional development initiative.
