Pattern, and obsessive compulsive detailing are elements that I am attracted to when viewing a work of art. As a lover of William Morris patterns, I was delighted to come across the illustrations of Anna Emilia. She has a wonderful sense of colour that to me evokes winter in the 1940's.

Her attention to detail captures your attention and is perfectly balanced with her use of negative space and airy white backgrounds. This takes the Victorian 'more is more' type fussiness and infuses it with and simplistic elegance that allows you to appreciate the natural forms that Anna Emilia has rendered.
