Prints, Papercuts, Anti Tory Homewares

Hi, I’m Emma and I like to cut paper with my tiny scalpel. I also love drawing and lettering, and often mix all of these things up to create art that is inspiring, fun, and almost always perfect for bookworms and nerds.

I grew up in Manchester, where I developed a love of buildings, canals, railways, and those spaces in-between where wild things grow. I’ve recently moved to a small town on the North East coast, (via Derby and Birmingham) where I swim in the sea and am close to wild and beautiful spaces. I take my inspiration from stories, myths, nature, books, favourite songs or films, the birds in my garden, and a lifelong love of libraries.

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    I’m Emma (she/her). I make papercuts, prints, and homewares, often combining papercutting, digital drawing and lettering to bring new pieces to life. My work is inspired by books, music, nature, and by my hatred of the Tories and the Patriarchy.
