Emily has been making art for as long as she can remember. While attending the Tom Savini’s Special Effects Makeup program at Douglas Education Center, Emily took a course on making eyes and teeth for movie dummies.  This opened her eyes to the unique art of making artificial eyes and she decided to pursue this as a career. After graduating from the program Emily started her apprenticeship with Bridget Kinneer, BCO in 2018. She thoroughly enjoys the relationships formed with patients and working her hardest to make sure the patient is happy with both their artificial eye and the experience of having it made.
