Emily’s Art prints available at Etsy

This is and will always be a major no, no in the design biz. The orphan. The word or letter left all on its own  – well, crap!

 I cannot make it go away, so that this link looks all pretty and well thought out. 

I don’t know what to say. I’ve got nothing, I’m sorryhttps://www.etsy.com/au/shop/EmilyRedsArt 

4 years studying Graphic Design, and I’ve got orphans. Never mind, I’ll stick to making pictures instead.

‘This old love’

I cram read in the Summer. 

Throughout the year, I’m often hanging on by a thread. There is kid stuff, kid notes, study for me and them, appointments, haircuts, shopping, cooking, washing, gardening – and still trying to find one on one time for each family member.

So, reading is the first thing to go. I can manage a few articles, a quick flick through a magazine. But the minute I see a spine, binding, and a reasonable strength cover on a publication, I’ve got no time. Not till Summer. Then I read 11 books. 

‘Cosmic girl’

I had a little piece of Lino left over from another print I had made. It was long and thin, and looked like a bath. I snippedoff the edges, and in she hopped. I tossed up between bubbles vs no bubbles – and went with galaxy instead. I had bought some lovely indigo, which I thought might be a nice change from black.

Here she is, blowing a bubble. Cosmic girl in the bathtub.

Ink and grout {making}


These sweet cheeks are from my First lady~like Lino print. 


I tried to replicate the same vibe in glass. This little piece is for the DWB/MSF art auction to be held in early 2017, organised by the incredible Lin Schorr. A great deal of work goes into making this happen year after year. 

Thanks Lin. You are super cool.

Looking for gesture {making}


A bit of a collection has started. Mosaic tools and pieces of glass are packed away on the shelf while I work through ideas and sketches and spend time digging out new images. 

I am absolutely trying to capture gestures. Humour, whimsy and deep feels are what I’m aiming for.

Numb & getting colder.
