EMILY COOK spent her childhood in Canada, Senegal and Greece. She has never lived in one place continuously for more than five years. In 2005 she received her BFA in printmaking at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, where she first encountered handmade paper. She has since spent three years at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, studying paper and its properties and the unique qualities it can bring to art work. During her time there, Louisiana was hit by two of the worst hurricanes in 100 years. Damage to the delicate marshlands along the Gulf Shore caused by introduced species and the oil industry has ensured that hurricanes have more impact on the mainland of the Gulf States than in the past. The devastation of natural landscapes and human lives witnessed in Louisiana helped inform Emily’s MFA thesis Drift. Emily has now returned to Toronto and is teaching at Ontario College of Art and Design.
