Let’s be still

Missing the beach already, and Autumn has only just arrived. The mornings are a little cooler – and any chance of feeling sleepily warm in the sun has quickly dissipated.

Sun on skin, soothing salt water, velvet sand, warm Summer breeze. Is it the change of seasons that have us feeling so wanting for that tiny window of warmth, sunscreen smells and permission to do not a lot? I think so.

Come back Summer, I miss you!


Queen of the slipstream

She made it to paper, this amount of sauce was appreciated by the people.


Festive feels

Whipping up a batch of Christmas cards. I thought of the part I hand over to another more patient, mature member of my family. It’s the lights, that predictable and most likely avoidable tangle of lights.

I bring you my Christmas print.

I carved this gal, then took her to the studio. She chomped up my ‘good’ brayer – when I inked her up. Dammit!

Banging brights or warm whites.

Ready for selling. Find them on Etsy – or email me.


‘Queen of the slipstream’

This little lady came about because I was asked to make something a bit more ‘risque’. My mind went straight to a flash of side boob, and once that idea is in there…

Work in progress…


Busy, busy

I seem to be having a moment. I was always hoping it would come, and here it is. Living the dream, living my dream. Making pictures, and having found an audience that wants them. 

Exciting and busy, exhausting and busy, full and busy.

It’s nice.


Ode to Jeffrey aka ‘I can’t tell you why’

We lost our lovely friend Jeff. Our first fur baby, the sweetest, gentlest tortoiseshell in the world, she was old. I decided to put into practice the idea of a cat print, because when I draw an animal the first thing I naturally draw is a cat. 

The obvious connotations connected with cats and middle aged women came to mind.

And then of course the need to ensure the cat was in control of the situation came next.



This headshot was taken for the DWB/ MSF mosaic auction for 2017.

Here I am.


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.


Lino printing session

Had a monster printing sesh, and look what happened. Each different from the other. Each one drawn out, planned out. Cosmic girl in the tub, less so – and yet, she is the girl the people are asking for…
