Emmeline graduated from Cambridge School of Art in 2008 with BA (Hons) in illustration. The illustration degree gave her insight into using a variety of artistic outcomes to create images. Because of this she works across a variety of mediums including painting & drawing, printmaking, ceramics and digital artwork.
Her work usually starts with a narrative, linking back to her illustration practice, but she views herself more as a surface designer than a painter/ artist. Her paintings are just a starting point for her work as she creates a range of products from her artwork including greetings cards, tableware, silk scarves and home based textiles, but everything starts life in the sketchbook which she uses as a visual diary for everyday inspiration.
Her love of textiles, pattern, and the decorative arts are strong influences in her work.
