Emily Thiessen

Map #54
Emily Thiessen is an illustrator, muralist, and screen printer with a fire for creative troublemaking. She comes from two lines of restless settlers: Hokkien Malaysians, and Mennonites who immigrated to Manitoba.

Emily learned how to paint murals as a 19-year-old intern in an art collective in Singapore and cut her teeth designing protest posters at university.

In 2022 she moved to K’ómoks territories to work as a screen printer at Wachiay Studio in 2022, following a craving to make things with her own two hands.


I sometimes post updates about where to find screen prints for sale on my Instagram page.

You can also get in touch via email about mural and illustration commissions.
