Emily Lindskoog is a Chicago based artist and educator. She received her MFA in painting and drawing from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 2010 and has been teaching drawing and art history at North Park University since 2013. Her mixed media drawings serve as analog records of the body, gesture, activity, or data. Her most recent work is a series of unfixed two and three dimensional collages that are meant to feel infinitely rearrangeable, a concept that stems from her life as a new mother.
