Hello, and welcome to Emma Ekstam’s online portfolio.

I live and work as an illustrator in beautiful Copenhagen, and I’m part of the illustrator/artist collective Kulkælderen.

The majority of my work is done by hand, for the simple reason that it gives me more pleasure than working on a computer. I have an intimate relationship to analogue printing techniques, such as intaglio printing, wood/linoleum cuts and letterpress, but lately I find myself more and more attracted to painting (colour, light, volume, no black outlines, difficult..) I work to create things that I find interesting and fulfilling on a variety of levels, and I’m hoping this will lead me in a positive direction.

Don’t hesitate to get in contact with me for whatever reason you may have.
