Emie Hughes is a mixed-media artist working in the mediums of cyanotype, acrylic, and watercolor in sizes from 6″x 6″ to 48″ x 60.” Trained as a modern dancer & choreographer, Emie graduated with a B.A. in Dance/Theatre Arts from Dickinson College, where she won the Emil R. and Tamar Weiss Prize in Creative Arts. After graduation, she immediately moved to NYC where she worked in the arts, arts administration, and fundraising for 6 years.

She has shown her mixed-media works in Brooklyn, the Greater Philadelphia Area, and Wilmington, DE. She has presented her choreographic works at venues including the Blue Ball Barn, Delaware Art Museum, Brandywine River Museum, Triskelion Arts, the EstroGenius Festival, Dixon Place, and the Bowery Poetry Club. As a dancer, she sees her work as choreography regardless of medium and moves between the mediums of visual art & movement when creating works in her studio at Aston Mills Arts (Aston, PA). She is also a teaching artist at the Rehoboth Art League, Main Line Art Center, Delaware Institute for the Arts in Education, Community Arts Center, and Rockdale Art Center. At the center of her artwork is her love of blue, nature, and magic of the process.
