Emily Wasyluk was born in 1992 and grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She creates eclectic art in a variety of
mediums including painting, drawing, photography, pottery, writing and music. Emily became passionate
about art in high school where her art teacher, Loren Reichert, influenced and inspired her artistic endeavours. Additional influences include; Van Gogh (spiritual), Robert Rauschenberg (style), Alberto Giacometti
(drawing), Picasso (emotion) and her great grandma who was also an artist. She is currently a Fine Art student at the University of Manitoba, has taken classes at the WAG and attended photography camps.
Emily puts her own story into each art piece as a way to express her true self, communicate difficult ideas
and connect with others through art, leaving a legacy of mystery and intrigue. She is a compassionate person and is a dedicated and fast worker. She says, “art is a way to deal with difficult experiences and address
stigma and discrimination by inviting viewers to change opinions about artists with mental health issues,
through the sharing of those experiences.”
