SHOWCASE – TABITHA EMMA
The first time I discovered the work of Tabitha Emma was on etsy a few months ago. I love etsy, in fact I think I’m a little obsessed, I’m always scouring around looking for amazing talent, a quirky find, a beautiful design. Tabitha Emma is all three.

Album: I’m more a singles person. But I do like the Ministry of Sound albums.
Restaurant: Flying Fajita Sisters, Glebe.
I’m inspired by the urban and natural environment, and vintage treasures. I love texture, things that are worn, aged and have a history.
When did you first discover your talent?
My mother is an artist, and when I was little, she taught me to draw, paint and make things. Rather than it being a discovery, it has always been apart of me. I was brought up creative and never stopped pursuing it. I remember even in Kindergarten being praised by the teacher for my drawings.
All of your designs and illustrations have a fantastic retro feel, what is it about the past that you love?
It’s imperfectness, and detail. Modern things are too slick and perfect, I prefer I bit of texture and imperfection. Something with history and meaning.
10 words to describe yourself as an artist…..
