About Author

Emily Hogarth's relationship with paper started while she was studying textiles at Edinburgh College of Art. She found papercutting was a quick way of creating sharp, bold, and uniquely individual stencils for screen printing. After graduating she went on to study an MA in textiles, where her papercutting developed and she learned to apply and integrate these unique designs to illustrations and graphic designs. Today she runs her own design business, Emily Hogarth Designs, as well as exhibiting work throughout the UK. She currently lives and works in Edinburgh. This is her website: www.emilyhogarth.com.
