About Emily Jepps

After finishing my illustration degree back in 2005 I worked as a freelance illustrator, but found it frustrating not having the creative freedom I desired. So, I started to design & make my own products to sell myself, starting with a small range of lampshades. For several years I only sold homewares & had every intention of keeping it this way, until the pandemic hit! Like many people I found myself with a lot more time on my hands. I was able to explore new ideas & that led me to where I am today, making a diverse range of goods from my home studio in Kent.

I’m inspired by nature, especially woodlands, and also by objects from the past that are either beautifully designed or just full of nostalgia. I love the bold designs and clean bright colours of the mid-century era, but I'm also a fan of dark and moody and I like to create things that have a bit of the gothic fairy-tale about them.

All my products feature my own illustrations & I make pretty much everything myself by hand (the exception being prints & cards, which are printed on recycled card stock in the UK.) I'm dedicated to using environmentally friendly materials wherever possible & post everything without plastic packaging.

I really love what I do & getting to share my work with other people means everything. Please do get in touch if you have any questions at all, I will get back to you asap.
