Em Kettner grew up just north of the Philadelphia city limit and studied Painting and Drawing at the University of the Arts. While there she visited the zoo and watched a tortoise with a broken front leg lurch around his pen. The keepers had strapped him down to a little square skateboard and so he left a hybridized trail of glyphs in his wake: a claw print, a ragged smear, a wheel track.
Em was named for her mother's favorite poet and her father's favorite mother. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Painting and Drawing right here at SAIC.
