Memories are Made of These.
From her home on a hill farm on the west coast of Scotland, artist Emma Fellowes is creating the most exquisite personalised silk-painted heirlooms of the future.
The paintings, originally inspired by samplers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries depict all manner of events, from a stork announcing baby's date of birth and weight, to a church bell entwined with rings and ribbons to commemorate a wedding day.
Individually painted on the finest silk, they are as beautiful to the touch as they are to the eye. Emma works closely with her customers to design an entirely unique and exclusive piece. She says; "Life is full of important events. Everyone has a different and remarkable story to tell. What I love to do is create pictures for those stories that can be enjoyed by generation after generation."
DialEmma Designs took off after attending the Country Living Fair, Glasgow. Those looking for a unique gift for a friend or relative, or even to treat themselves can simply choose their image(s) and fill in any additional details. Commissioning a personalised work of art has never been simpler.
A graduate of Central School of Art and Design in London and Middlesex Polytechnic, Emma Fellowes is also a member of the Guild of Silk Painters. DialEmma Designs was set up in 2000 with the help of Argyll and Isles Enterprise Small Business Scheme, and has grown steadily since.
