Emily Shott is studying Sculpture at Savannah College of Art and Design, located in Atlanta, Georgia, where she will receive her B.F.A. in 2018. She grew up in Michigan, where she was constantly surrounded by animals and nature, which has a large influence on her creations.  The work she creates focuses on creature design, puppets and set building. Emily takes a multi-media approach for her work but favors fibers and fabrics.  After graduation, she is set on working in the fabrication industry.
