Hello! I'm Emillie, a 22 year old Illustrator, Designer and Photographer based in Suffolk, England. I graduated from the University of Lincoln, BA (Honours) Media Production in 2015 and have been pursuing a creative career in embroidery ever since! When I'm not embroidering you'll find me spending my time with friends & family, cooking tasty recipes, watching endless amounts of films and tv shows and keeping fit by running outside or training at the gym.
What originally began as a curious part-time hobby two years ago has now turned into my absolute favourite thing to do every day. I love to embroider an assortment of woodland/wildlife themed art & custom pet portraits.
I love using this medium as it is timeless, unique and requires a lot of patience. I embroider with one strand of DMC embroidery thread at a time as this allows me to get capture the finest details possible. The most challenging part is trying to find the perfect colour for a portrait, as you can’t easily mix colour as you would with paint, thus I have to create the illusion of it!
I dream of creating illustrations for magazines & book covers, publishing my own book and releasing a collection of homeware/clothing such as cushions, aprons & tea towels.....but for now I will continue to embroider my heart out
