Mimi studied Textile Design at The University of Leeds and at Norwich University of the Arts, where she specialised in illustration and digital design, graduating in July 2014.
She has exhibited work at Premier Vision in Paris and in her final year, Mimi’s work was selected for the ‘New Designers’ 2014 showcase in Islington. In the same year she was chosen to exhibit her work at the ‘Dulux Design Service New Talent Show’.
With her distinctive use of colour and characterful drawing style, Mimi was snapped up by Hallmark soon after she finished her studies, working with them to create countless illustrations that were used for their premium range of greetings cards. John Lewis were another major company that saw Mimi's potential, and they currently stock a selection of her framed wildlife prints.
Mimi Emmett, England
Mimi Emmett, England is a stunning collection of homeware inspired by the North Norfolk Coastline, beautiful country houses, and the unmistakable flora and fauna of the British Countryside.
Our brand mission was to create an extensive selection of prints in Mimi’s inimitable style that would be suitable for a wide range of different products, from soft furnishings and fashion accessories, to stationery and beyond, appealing to people of all ages. The current range spans from British game, to tropical fruits, and works just as well in a city apartment as it does in a cosy country retreat.
We are currently undergoing an exciting period of expansion, with an ambitious schedule of show appearances planned for 2017 and our full range is now available on this website through our online shop.
