"Our babysitter is wearing down fast" personal workEmma Ekstam"Our babysitter is wearing down fast" personal work  I've tried to illustrate the state of mind of our one year old son, who encounters the world without fear or hesitation. Most probably this this beautiful condition will pass with experience, so we cherish every day of suicidal behavior.

Emma Ekstam

Vad heter du och hur skulle du kort beskriva vad du gör?

Sedan jag tog examen från Konstfack 2014 har jag varit både frilansande illustratör och dekorationsmålare, samt assistent åt Skånes Måleri Konservatorer. Dessa spridda uppdrag och arbetsgivare knyts samman av min djupgående kärlek för analoga arbetsmetoder såsom måleri, teckning, trä & linoleum-snitt, screentryck, djuptrycksgrafik med mera. 

Som illustratör har jag arbetat för Natur & Kultur, Nordstedts, Monki, Rabén & Sjögren, Riksutställningar, Opal, Scandic Hotels, Bonnier Carlsen med flera.

Som dekorationsmålare har jag haft glädjen att få vara med och restaurera St Pauli kyrka i Malmö, Katrinetorp utanför Hyllie, Lilla Harrie kyrka, Konsul Perssons Villa i Helsingborg m fl.

Vad utmärker ditt skrivbord?

Böcker om medeltiden, en bra lampa, Pentel Color Brush i alla färger, en krukväxt som överlever på kalla the-slattar samt ett antikt timglas som mäter exakt 30 min.
