About the Author

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 have instilled in her a keen interest in people and places. Emma received a BFA in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia in 2004, and a Masters in Architecture from Dalhousie University in 2008. She has worked in architecture offices across Canada and in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her art practice is characterized by on-site drawing, place-based research, and a sense of the poetic.

Reviews

Praise for Emma FitzGerald

"FitzGerald has carved out her own niche as an artist who draws cities and buildings and special places, as a chronicler of the history of communities, a teller of stories of lives spent in particular places."--Lisa Cochrane, The Chronicle Herald

"The immediacy of her sketches and endearing subject matter will appeal to any inquisitive armchair traveler or urban sketcher."--Murray Dewhurst, Urban Sketcher

"From the majestic seawall to the everyday buzz of city life, [Fitzgerald] captures the essence of Vancouver and its neighbourhoods with colour and humour."-MONTECRISTO Magazine

"The book, a combination sketchbook/journal, is a smile-inducing record of neighbourhoods in Vancouver and the North Shore."- Vancouver Sun
