I am a passionate textile designer specialising in printed textiles. After graduating from Heriot Watt with a first, I continued my education with Edinburgh College of Art, finishing with a Master of Fine Art degree in Printed Textiles. Since then I have been working on both commercial and personal projects.
My practise is driven by dynamic colour, expressive pattern and translating my painting skills into design. With in-depth postgraduate study and professional experience, I try to find connection the between repeats for interiors and fine art pieces. In my work I unite colour, texture and pattern; crafting abstract and fresh print designs to address it to contemporary lifestyle markets.
Karin Eremia has recently graduated from The Edinburgh College of Art where she did an MA in Illustration. She continues being part of the department this year, as an artist in residence:
I am happy to join this blog, and I’d like to introduce myself by sharing with you a tiny selection of my illustration work. I am inspired and fascinated by our humankind, and my drawings often tend to explore social and gender issues. Memories, stories I have heard, places I have been to, constitute an important part of my illustrations as well. Here is a flavour of few woodcut prints that were part of my final MA project, and also some snippets of my sketchbook.
As a getting-to-know-you project to start off the year, all of our illustrators, stages 1 to 4 to MA, were asked to collaboratively interpret a nursery rhyme. We had animations, shadow puppetry, costume for performance, and other twists on illustration.
