Emilie Patteson is an emerging contemporary glass artist and illustrator. She grew up in Orange, NSW, and moved to Canberra in 2009 to study Glass at the Australian National University.

After graduating with Honours in 2012, Emilie moved into a studio at Canberra Glassworks, which she shares with glass artist Brian Corr.

Emilie has won awards from the Australian Decorative Fine Arts Society, Canberra Glassworks, Craft ACT, and was recently awarded Highly Commended in the Youth Category of the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize. She has exhibited throughout Australia and was exhibited in Prague, Czech Republic, as a finalist in the Stanislav Libensky Award.

Emilie’s work examines life cycles, particularly of plants, to draw attention to the fleetingness of life.
