About the Artist:
Emma FitzGerald was born to Irish parents in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa. She moved to Canada at a young age and spent most of her childhood in Vancouver, BC. These early travels instilled in her a keen interest in people and places.
Fitzgerald has followed a career of part architecture, part art, receiving a BFA in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia in 2004, and a Masters in Architecture from Dalhousie University in 2008. She is the author and illustrator of Hand Drawn Halifax, a best-selling book based on her chosen home in Nova Scotia, which has been described by The Globe & Mail as “part journal, part sketchbook, and a love letter to Atlantic Canada’s largest city.”
Fitzgerald has also illustrated two children’s books
