Emily Taylor

With a penchant for nature, all things vintage and international food packaging, Emily Taylor’s illustration and surface design work is marked by delicate line and painterly applications of colour, employing an often-nostalgic palette and lighthearted imagery. Her illustrations feel organic with a touch of femininity and have found homes across a wide variety of products, ranging from stationery, home goods, apparel, beauty packaging and quilting fabrics, to editorial publications and advertising campaigns. Frequent escapes to the countryside, Prince Edward Island and South-West Florida, as well as eager perusals of any antique stores or vintage markets discovered, deeply inspire and inform her work. When home, Emily can be found drawing away in Toronto, quietly tucked away between the Fashion District and Chinatown.
