emily is rather idealistic. she believes art can solve problems. that art should be available to the masses, and practiced by all.
to this effect, she makes a living. there is not one style that suits her, nor one capability. she offers services along the lines of illustration, design, storyboarding, and whatever else you wanta throw at her. she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Columbia College, Chicago. she also studied abroad in Japan for one very hot summer.

a person is shedding a tear and is holding a cross.
Emily created the painting The Case Against the School of the Americas, which was printed in the center fold of the Fall 2008 issue of Presente.  The SOA Watch office also printed postcards with the image.

"My hope with this piece is to raise awareness and give voice to the victims, in a form of art that speaks to everyone."
- Emily Wilson

Blown up to about 4' in height, this piece was shown in the Type/Writer show at the Hokin Gallery, Chicago, in December/January 2004. It is now on permanent display in the Hokin Annex at Columbia College, Chicago.

Prints are also on display in the office of School of the Americas Watch, at the offices of a number of human rights watch activists, like Mary Robinson, former U.N. High Commissioner of Human Rights, Jim McGovern, Representative of Massachusetts, and Joseph Margulies, professor of Law at University of Chicago.
