Emma Cowlam

About the artist

Emma Cowlam is a multi-award winning design graduate of Chelsea School of Art in London and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. After gaining a wealth of experience working in the fashion industry both sides of the Atlantic, she took all she had learnt and combined it with her lifelong passion for drawing. She founded her own studio and launched her first collection of fashion illustrations to global critical acclaim, both in the world of fine art and the famous fashion glossies.

Emma takes inspiration for her refined and beautiful illustrations from the everyday images observed throughout her daily life and transforms what she witnesses into lasting snapshots. Her work is sophisticated, stylish and chic. She is influenced by traditional fashion illustrations yet draws with a contemporary, realistic twist.

Her signature style appeals to both fine art and commercial clients and involves a highly unique and intricate hand-stitched illustration technique which elevates a traditional craft to luxury status. Her work has been shown at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Liberty of London and Somerset House, to name a few and Emma has collaborated with major international fashion magazines including Elle and Glamour, as well as a myriad of luxury brands such as Radley. Her work hangs in private art collections worldwide.
