Hi my name is Emma Russell, i am 33 years old and am based in Napier with my hubby Jason and our 2 young babes, Amelia who is 3 and Archer who is 2. I studied at EIT and have a degree in Visual Arts and Design and have been working in the printing industry and a graphic designer since then. I've been lucky enough to be a stay and home mama the past few years but being creative is just apart of my soul and I have been staying up very late each night digitally drawing my heart out. I started an instagram page called tinct design as a creative outlet and from here I also started doing commissioned prints for multiple different clients. I feel so lucky to be able to do what makes me so blimmin happy. I really hope you find something that makes you feel inspired within my little collection of art.
I started late, untaught, wild and free. My inspiration comes from life around me, or around the globe; places I've been and seen or that in other ways delight me, or events that shock us all.
Usually I have a feeling but not a plan, and what comes out expresses beauty in chaos, chaos in beauty.
