Emily Maude trained in illustration at Brighton College of Art.  Now living in Brighton, Emily’s studio is based in her home, and full of the beautiful eclectic objects that inhabit her work.


This recent series of imagined tableaux gouaches are based on her “dresser of dreams”. Heritage ceramic pieces are set against antique fabrics and patterns on tabletops, shelves and mantles to create vignettes of imagined lives giving us glimpses into other people’s homes, and collections. Working in gouache on handmade cotton rag paper the pieces are created from her studio in Brighton, each one completely unique.


Emily has sold her collections internationally to clients including Liberty and Paul Smith. She has completed illustration work for clients including The New York Times, Octopus Publishing, Canns Down Press, and Amazon and is represented by Spinning Yarn.
