Emily Lockhart is a professional imagemaker based in Toronto, Canada. She was educated at Ryerson University’s prestigious School of Image Arts, where she honed her skills in the darkroom as well as the computer lab and received an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts in the spring of 2007. Her thesis project, “DOGS”, is represented in the University’s permanent collection and is on display in the vault of the new Image Centre.
Lockhart’s diverse and expanding portfolio includes graphic design and web work as well as photography. She is known for her focus on elegant, well-crafted images with a strong foundation of craftsmanship, and believes that art is at its best when it is pleasurable. She frequently draws her inspiration from the architectural, cultural, and natural topography of Canadian cities, believing that the quality of urban life is greatly enhanced when the real exists alongside artistic visions and reflections. Her clients have included large corporations and independent operations ranging from Cornell University and White Pine Pictures to the Grand River Baroque Festival and Rover, a small but important dog fashion boutique.
Originally from Calgary, Emily Lockhart now lives in the West End of Toronto with a growing collection of old cameras from EBay.
