Emily Scott

I've spent most of my life in the Pacific Northwest and love all things outdoors. I'm passionate about music, design, painting, and working with people. As an artist, I seek to explore how artistic expression can change the way we view others and ourselves, and to understand the importance of vulnerability in that process.
