Since 2007, Emily Myers has been working in animation across platforms including commercials, television series, educational videos, and film. While working in the industry, she has maintained her creative arts practice on the side, which revolves around storytelling. She was awarded a project grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council for her experimental story based gallery show called The Ruby Blues which involved a series of drawings and tableaus of static stop motion puppets on sets. After six and a half years at Laika, Emily left her Armaturist position to jump back into the freelancing world. She can now be found fabricating puppets at Shadow Machine Northwest, creating live action comedy shorts, and occasionally teaching at Oregon College of Art and Craft.
