EMERY SMITH

Fabric designer, artist and sewist

 

Welcome to my blog.


I am a non-binary artist, fabric designer and sewist, who lives on the Surrey/Hampshire border with my family.

I draw inspiration from science and the natural world, and employ a multi-disciplinary approach to my art and craft practice, in which I explore colour, pigment, and texture.

I've also spent the last 4-5 years building myself a handmade, sustainably wardrobe which helps me feel good about my self.

I began drawing and painting when I was a child, but first began designing fabrics around eight years ago after my first child was born. After becoming frustrated at how gendered children's textiles were, and the lack of anything that wasn't pink or blue, I set out to create a range of fabric designs that are full of colour and intended to be enjoyed by all genders. 

I have worked with a range of clients (e.g. GFW clothing, Tots Bots, Kula Cloth) as well as selling my designs through the print-on-demand fabric site Spoonflower. 

Since my second child has been born, I have been learning to balance parenthood with my art and craft practice, and my fabric design business has taken a temporary pause.


Instead I have been prioritising learning and process over end-product, and thinking more about sustainability in my work.
