Emmalee Carroll lives and works in the greater East Bay in Northern California. She is influenced by the natural world and especially endangered species and their dwindling numbers. After a few semesters studying biology at UC Berkeley, Carroll decided to pursue her love for printmaking instead and received a BFA from UCB in 2009. The sciences still play an important part in shaping the direction of her printmaking.
Carroll holds her MFA in printmaking from the Academy of Art University and was granted a scholarship for a summer in Italy Study Abroad program. She also completed a 14 day artist residency in Venice in August 2011 in which she made prints on the island of Murano at the Venice Printmaking Studios.
She runs the entire gamut of printmaking mediums - but lithography, relief, and mixed media are her favorites...with book arts and letterpress a close second. And there's always something on her oil painting easel.
Carroll paints out of her home studio in Concord, California and has participated in several group shows in galleries throughout the Bay Area including the Worth Ryder Gallery and the June Stiengart Gallery.
