2019 - Cover Artist for Artists’ Open House

My artwork was selected to be on the cover of the inaugural Crystal Palace Artists’ Open House in April/May of 2019.

The Crystal Palace Artists’ Open House ran from the 27-28 April and 4-5 May 2019. This initiative gives visitors access to more than 80 artists in their studios and local spaces for the first time in Crystal Palace.

The illustration selected for the campaign cover is titled ‘Matsalen’, which means ‘Dining Room’ in Swedish. 

Emma Walker’s illustrations are amalgamations of domestic settings and artefacts within the home. The images often capture what is lost or nearly lost, recording objects that are deemed out of place, have been left behind, or may lose their former significance.  Many of the pictures have a story to tell. Hidden within the layers, you may find a ticket from a steam train journey, a child’s painting, a sticker from a museum, old book jackets, the signature of a five year old, children’s heights recorded on a door frame... Look closely! You might find them.   Emma discovered illustration alongside a long career working as a Textile Artist for film, television and theatre, a career that has shaped her eye for design, form and colour. She uses hand and digital techniques which cross over into both disciplines.
