Emily Cross, Artist & Musician | HSJAS 2006

Emily Cross is an artist, musician, as well as an end-of-life doula, living in Cornwall, England. After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where her visual artwork centered around mortality and loss, she moved to Austin and quickly became integrated within the arts and music scene, forming the indie band LOMA, in which she continues to write music and tour both in the US and overseas. In 2015 she decided to pursue a career serving the dying and earned professional certifications from the University of Vermont and from Quality-of-Life Care. She established Steady Waves End of Life Services in 2017 and brings her unique set of skills to her work with the dying and their families. She has recently relocated to Cornwall, UK.
