Emily May designs. From 365 days of drawing, to contemporary art installation and print and graphic design, Emily's work takes many forms. Her distinctive illustrations have led her to work with major brands such as Ted Baker, Speedo, and Lacoste, and her award winning silk scarves have been exhibited in galleries across the country.
Originally from Hertfordshire, Emily has strong links with both Cornwall and London, and draws on her passion for the narrative and humour of the everyday to influence everything she creates.
Illustrated in watercolour and digitally printed onto silk satin within the UK.
This scarf measures 90x90cm. Each design comes beautifully wrapped and presented in a vintage tin. Tins will vary.
The 'Pond Life' design is part of the 'Life Laundry Collection' developed from Emily May's love of narrative and storytelling. The collection is based around illustrating objects and places with a familiarity and history that speaks to everyone.
This piece contains the pendant the artist's grandfather brought home for her grandmother at the end of the Second World War.
