Rookart is Emma's little art brand featuring black and white scraperboard illustrations of delightful animals, intriguing bugs and beautiful flora. Among the list of products is her original art, limited edition prints, greeting cards, magnetic bookmarks, Christmas cards, tea towels + gift tags, just to name a few!
Emma has been drawing forever and learnt the art of scraperboard whilst studying Graphic Design many years ago and hasn't been able to stop since!
Scraperboarding is white ivory board which has been coated with china clay and then a layer of black ink. The effect is achieved by scratching away the black layer revealing the white beneath using a fine print cutting tool.
All of her artwork is created in her little backyard studio and details, patterns, fur, feathers and holiday's by the beach inspire her work. Emma scans all of her pieces at a very high resolution in order to make high quality reproductions.
Knowing that she hasn't even scratched the surface (no pun intended!) of subjects to immortalise in black and white keeps her going and there is an enormous list of ideas that are slowly being worked through...but Dark chocolate M&M's help too!
Emma loves being her own boss and bringing her own ideas to fruition is extremely rewarding for her, but when she needs to clear her head she takes her dog for a huge walk or jumps on the trampoline with her daughters!
There will be new greeting card designs, a new range of limited edition prints and aprons being added to Rookart's range soon, so keep an eye out for these, as no doubt they will be stunning!
Meet Emma on the gathered. cart from next Wednesday 31st October - Sunday 6th November in the Fresh Food Market at Westfield Marion or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
