Exhibition: Emilie Sheehan at Something for Jess Share on Facebook Share on Twitter
Something for Jess presents a new pop-up exhibition of Australian prints by British artist and designer Emilie Sheehan, who lives and works in Sydney.
Inspired by the unique, native wildlife and landscape in Australia, her range of funny and delightful Aussie prints showcase her love story to Australia. Her outsider’s perspective embraces the Aussie sense of fun and charm.
All the prints are on sale, with 10% of the profits will go to WIRES (wildlife rescue) charity.
She mixes hand-drawn and watercolour with digital techniques to create playful and bold imagery. Her work creates new personalities, brings joy, while putting a smile on peoples’ faces.
Emilie is a comedy obsessive, inspired by New Yorker cartoons, the energy of Quentin Blake, and the original Paddington Bear illustrations.
These products are made in, and represent Australia and are the perfect memento to a wonderful country.
