Hailing from the Hudson Valley region, Emily Dorr relishes in the macabre, the comical, and the whimsical. Not willing to stick to any one medium, she created an umbrella for all her creations called Fuzzy Gray Lines. Working with watercolor and ink, her art is full of bloodied animals, commissions for her rabid fans, and lo-brow comics featuring two foxes she calls Wry and Wit. Her work was most recently apart of the Mohawk Hudson Regional 2017 exhibition, curated by Jack Shear, and held in the Albany Institute of History and Art. Dorr’s first solo show took place at Launch Pad Cooperative in Toledo, Ohio in 2013. In between those highlights, she has shown at galleries throughout the Capitol Region.
Dorr’s deviation from “strictly fine” art began in 2013 upon receiving her Bachelors of Fine Art with a concentration in Painting and Drawing from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Before that you could find her earning her Associate in Fine Art at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY.
Dorr is currently enrolled again at Hudson Valley Community College, this time in pursuit of a nursing degree. While this has consumed most of her time, she still enjoys doing commissions such as pet portraits and D & D concept art, as well as her own varied painting projects. She currently lives and works in Albany, NY at the Albany Barn.
