Emma Gerard — Visual Art
In 2008, after three successful years at Sheridan where Emma completed the Crafts and Design diploma with high honours she was selected as one of the teaching assistants for this program.
During her first year out of school Emma was accepted into the prestigious exhibition Unity and Diversity held Cheongju International Craft Biennale. She continued to exhibit and refined her craft skills while developing a body of production jewellery and mixed media sculpture.
Later as a resident artist and flameworking instructor at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga Emma created a successful line of humorous and thought provoking work. While in residency she was also awarded an individual craft project grant from the Ontario Arts Council.
In addition to her previous studies Emma has completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at NSCAD University studying in the jewellery department. Emma is excited to continue to build her studio and practice.
