Now in Stores | To Market, To Market by Emily Isabella

Within the designs of “To Market, To Market”, a nostalgia filled story was woven about an everyday trip to the market. Emily Isabella playfully depicts the canopy of trees that covers your head as you journey along, carefully avoiding the buds that pop out of the sidewalk. The fruits and foliage acquired at the market are put in bowls and vases in your home, all while whispers of a childhood rhyme run through your head.

Her fresh, bright designs are created using marker pen, graphite and pencil, which gives the hand drawn quality to her work.. It’s the instant flat mark making that she enjoys about the medium, along with the bleed of the ink on the white paper. The illustrations are scanned and backgrounds cleaned, but digital processing is minimum to retain the natural organic pencil line and the delicate edges.

No prizes for guessing that Jo is passionate about animals and nature, they are her main source of inspiration. Along with taking walks in the country, urban exploring or browsing the antique shops looking for treasures, it all goes into the creative process, some how.
