Emily lives in Ballarat and our world's collided a few years ago..... spraying rainbow magic dust everywhere! So I am very excited to be collaborating with her.... we have come together to make her stunning designs into Handkerchiefs.
The fabrics are printed in Melbourne, Australia making them truly Australian made!
EMILY VAN MOLEN 🌈
Emily is an artist, maker and seeker of visual wonder who sees the world through a kaleidoscopic filter.
She finds things like the iridescence hiding within a seashell, the rainbow swirl of an oil stain on the road, or a prismatic reflection cast mysteriously on a wall irresistibly magical, and squirrels away the imagery in her minds eye to later inform her visual works.
The media and techniques she engages in her work are vast and varied. Having been raised amongst strong, crafty women, traditional crafts play a proud role in her making, while a lifetime of making pictures and studying art bring a solid repertoire of painting and drawing skills to her creative table.
Most recently, having become custodian to a large, luminously wild garden, her more newest work has seen an explosion of floral imagery (and is responsible for her dubious pilfering of plant cuttings!).
Complementing her practice as an artist, Emily is also a passionate arts educator, inspiring children and adults to connect with their own inherent creativity through workshops and classes, giving them confidence in their value as creatives in their own right, and helping to hush those negative voices that insist on perfection, encouraging joy in the process instead!
