Emily Caisip is a Brooklyn based artist. She studied Illustration at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. After moving to New York from Los Angeles to pursue a career in editorial illustration, her interests grew to include murals, fine art and textile design. She works primarily with ink creating works intricately drawn and inspired by nature. She is also inspired by timeless artists such as Alfons Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, John Singer Sargent, John Auguste Dominique Ingres and contemporary artists James Jean, Lucian Freud, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami and the list goes on. But the best inspiration comes from life, movies, music, stories told and read, etc. Her future pursuits include silkscreening which will enable her to fulfill a dream of creating wallpaper, one of her many goals as an artist.
