Emily Pope (b. 1993, Canada) is a painter living and working in Toronto. Her work explores the pairing of her body with symbolic elements and settings, amplifying experiences and feelings of womanhood. She aims to extract clarity from the ethereal, presenting an inward life of daydreams on canvas. Self-taught, Emily pulls from her background in the film industry as an art director and graphic designer when approaching the curation of scenes and character analysis in her paintings.
