Mixed Media Embroidery Artist
Emily Porter is a mixed media embroidery artist living and working in Easthampton, MA. She uses her sewing machine, thread, and ink to create bold, surreal illustrations. The themes of her work include power, spirituality, nature, and mental health awareness.
She earned her BFA in Printmaking and Drawing from Washington University in St. Louis. She is a lifelong lover of anything fiber arts related, and has been practicing her current technique - free motion machine embroidery - since 2015. Her work can be found in private collections across North America.
Each piece is created using a technique called freemotion machine embroidery. This is basically like drawing with a needle. Making a few simple tweaks to a regular sewing machine allows you to sew in any direction. It is not unlike tattooing on canvas. Each piece has a mixture of black and colored sewn thread as well as alcohol ink for baseline shading and color.
Order custom artwork of your pet, house, or other nature inspired idea.
HOW IT WORKS
I take commissions for custom artwork including but not limited to pet portraits, houses, and other animal or nature related ideas. I also offer an additional purchase of stickers with your custom art. I can turn the whole or part of your artwork into a sticker so you can share it with others.
1. Contact me via email or instagram to discuss your project either before or after your purchase.
2. Purchase your artwork and any sticker add ons.
3. Send me clear, well lit pictures of your idea. I will copy it exactly so it should be a nice photo with nothing in the way.
The turnaround time varies by the size and complexity of your artwork. Smaller works are generally ready for shipment within 1 week. Larger or more complex pieces can take 3-4 weeks. Once your artwork is ready for shipping, it will ship securely to you via USPS (FREE SHIPPING with the US). Shipping insurance can be ordered for an extra fee.
