Emily Sheppard

Artist statement

Hi, my name is Emily Sheppard. I am a 23 year old HND Art and Design student at Forth Valley College. After the summer I plan to progress onto the BA Art and Design course. I plan to eventually teach Art and Design in colleges as I want to inspire and assist others to discover and develop their craft, just like I have. As this year has been mostly online learning, I decided to try out more digital art methods. This is when I found a strong love for digital drawings and repeat patterns. I now specialize in developing and abstracting my digital drawings to create patterns with interesting optical illusion effects. I take inspiration from nature and my surrounding environment. On display, I have a lino print and some examples of developments from original drawing to printed or embroidered pattern. At the link below you will find my Instagram account, where you will find more of my designs and works-in-progress.
