About the Artist
Emily Tironi is a mixed media collage artist with a disability based in Cambridge, NY. She has an AAS in Media Arts from SUNY Adirondack and a BA in Disability Studies from CUNY School of Professional Studies. Her work was included in the 31 Women Exhibit at the Sedona Arts Center in 2020 and she had her first solo exhibition at Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, VT in 2020. Her work is a celebration of the disability experience and she uses surrealism, bright colors, and humor in her work to challenge societal norms and stereotypes regarding disability. She believes bringing this perspective to the general public and society is important and uses her experience as a disabled person and knowledge of disability studies to enhance and inform her work. During the pandemic, she has participated in several international virtual residencies and online exhibitions. She enjoys spending time with her family and works on her collages daily.
