Emily Bird is an emerging Melbourne based textile designer. Emily brings a strong illustrative style to her designs which feature bold, vivid colours. Her work is meticulously process driven, and often contains flora and fauna based designs with a distinctive hand rendered style. Born in The Blue Mountains NSW and raised in rural northern Victoria, her work is often inspired by her experiences and surroundings.
The emphasis of her work is about detail and quality, underpinned with mindfulness of sustainability. Her method involves a very hands on approach, often comprising screen printing, embroidery and hand painting techniques with an exploration of modern and traditional processes.
Emily has gained both commercial and creative experience working alongside various companies, including Linen House, Pattern Source, Country Road and Maxwell & Williams.
