Welcome to the uncharted land of curious creatures, inspired by myths, legends and the unique beauty of the natural world…
Emma J Shipley is a British graphic artist creating homeware and accessories for nature lovers, dreamers and maximalists. Emma has always had a fascination with nature and animals, in particular those from the most extreme and wild places on Earth. She mixes inspiration from her own travels with a fervent imagination and fictional influences such as myths, legends, and fairytales, to create a unique and fantastical world of design. The designs are all hand-drawn in pencil, before being intricately digitally coloured, giving a distinctive look combining traditional and cutting-edge techniques.
The brand launched at London Fashion Week in 2012, after Emma graduated from the Royal College of Art. Emma won multiple awards for her drawing and designs on graduation and has since won business awards in the UK and internationally.
Emma J Shipley brand makes each and every piece ethically, in premium materials, always minimising theirimpact on the environment. Favouring a slow and considered approach to design, rather than fast-changing trends. The company believes that design is timeless and trendless, and that the pieces will spark the imagination and bring joy for years to come.
