Emily is an extremely talented artist from Devon who works in acrylics to create the designs for her eponymous brand, Emily Smith Designs. Working from her family farm in the beautiful depths of Devon, she finds inspiration from the animals and countryside around her. “The best thing for me is seeing the finished product, seeing what I just created and hoping there is someone that appreciates it as much as I do.” Originally only painting for her children, Emily was soon inundated for requests of her paintings and this led to the launch of the Emily Smith brand, which now has an ever-growing product range, including umbrellas, prints, notebooks, and homewares.
