Emma Molony calls herself a printmaker but that does not in any way describe her many talents.
She started printmaking in 2002 when she was living in Venice and she was fascinated by the dark inky print studios. She learnt etching, mezzotint and woodcut before returning to Devon in 2005 where she continued to print.
Peter Pan Wallpaper
Her own prints incorporate monotype drawing – she loves the smoky loose lines and incorporates them with screenprint as this enables the use of flat colour, delicate patterns, drawings and repeat designs on fabric and paper.
Peter and the Wolf Acrylic Box
Much of her work is inspired by papercutting and silhouettes, particularly the papercuts of Hans Christian Anderson and I absolutely adore these story-telling designs straight out of my childhood.
Peter and the Mermaids Bauble
Emma also works with groups outside of the studio who wouldn’t otherwise have access to printmaking equipment – schools, prisons, hospitals, galleries, festivals and community groups. You can read more about her work here.
