Emma McGowan is an illustrator and surface pattern designer who's exhibiting for the first time at this year's Surtex, alongside three other artists from the newly formed Four Corners Art Collective. Emma was a semi-finalist in the last Global Talent Search and reached the final 8 of the Printsource Ultimate Portfolio Builder competition. Now she's travelling from her hometown of Brighton on the south coast of England with a portfolio packed full of florals, conversational patterns and decorative co-ordinates, designed for stationery, packaging, greetings, gifts, homewares and accessories. All Emma's work is available for license and sale, and she's actively looking for clients who enjoy creative collaboration. You can see more of Emma's work on her website or visit her in booth 229 at Surtex.
