Artist’s Spotlight – Emily Johnston

As an Independent Phoenix Trader, I get to see lots of gorgeous new designs come through with every product release. I’m sure we all have our favourites every time, and I know mine change from week to week! So, I thought it’d be nice to have a little look at the artists that are behind these designs…

My work is bold, fun and eye-catching. I currently design work for the greetings cards and stationery industry.’

All of Emily’s Phoenix designs can be found here at, or pop to her Facebook page to find out more about her and her work. If you’re interested in becoming a Phoenix artist yourself, find out more here.
