American illustrator Emily Isabella kicks off the new year as our guest pinner. You can see her work regularly in Flow, including the Flow Book for Paper Lovers 5.
Emily lives with her husband Paul in a self-sufficient house they built themselves in the countryside, north of New York, US. “I love being outdoors and am constantly inspired by nature. I also learn a lot from it; I look at beetles or the lines on a petal very carefully. It helps me to stay creative.” Emily never leaves the house without her art supplies, and prefers to sketch while seated on a picnic blanket or during long walks. “I like working with oil paints, soft pencils and clay, but I use gouache the most; it dries quickly and is easy to carry around.”
