Lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia
Emma Huntington Baldwin is a mixed media artist living and working in Vancouver, British Columbia. She was born in North Carolina and attended East Carolina University for her undergraduate training. Upon graduation she was awarded with a BFA in Painting/Drawing, a BA in English, minor Creative Writing and a BA in Multidisciplinary Studies with a Concentration in Art Histories. Her undergraduate thesis show consisted of a study of the book form with an emphasis on environmental concerns.
While studying she participated in a number of group exhibitions and two solo exhibitions of her work. She also traveled extensively, spending time in Italy, as well as England, Spain and the Scandinavian countries.
After graduation Baldwin attended two residencies. The first in Joutsa, Finland where she taught book making workshops, and the second in Česky Krumlov, Czech Republic. During this period of time her work remained within the realm of books and paper. She became interested in nature as an ideology and what society does and does not consider to be valuable in the natural world.
In the spring of 2018 she began her graduate studies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Since entering into the graduate program her work has become completely paper based. She has made a number of large scale installation pieces, and is now exploring the concepts based around a reimagining of the future and the botanic possibilities it could present. Her intricately designed and hand cut work depicts new ways of understanding environmental interactions through paper, watercolour, and a three dimensional presentation.
In the coming months she will be working on a large scale paper cut piece to be exhibited at Vancouver’s Science World.
