“I chose to work with calming imagery... what I want to look at if I were having a psychotic meltdown in a cave somewhere.”

Emma Repp is an illustrator based in Seattle, Washington. Her work has been featured in publications like Domino, Gotham, and Create Magazine.
Originally trained as a printmaker, Emma employs a similar calculated process and layered aesthetic to create surreal images from an array of handmade and digital elements. Emma is inspired by our ability to find peace amongst the chaos of everyday life, and expresses this feeling through the collage of bold, patterns, colors, textures and shapes. Looking at her work is like getting lost in an alternate reality, where colors and patterns are sprinkled with fairy dust. The whimsical and shimmering worlds she creates feel familiar and comforting, yet invoke our imagination for further exploration.
