Over twenty-five years, while holding various jobs in various locations, Emily Araújo has maintained an art practice centered on drawing and installation.
Soon after she and her husband started their family, she began working with the Einstein Papers Project (EPP) at Caltech. In the fall of 2022, after a dozen years with the project, Araújo elected to move to a half-time position at the EPP.
Since taking this decision, Araújo has: honed her skills in textile and surface pattern design, joined the artist-activist collective Artnauts, and completed two commissions of custom artwork in private residences.
Emily Araújo has a certificate in Textile and Surface Design from Otis College of Art and Design (2013), an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University (2001) and a BFA in printmaking from California College of the Arts (1995). She lives in Altadena, California with her husband and two children.
