Emily Jost – England

Emily Jost is an artist, designer and arts education specialist. Her current work explores
patterns, and memories of patterns, as the backdrop to the dramas, interactions and
tensions of domestic life. Her new range of wallpapers is a first departure into reproducing
and disseminating her work to a wider audience. Developing the idea of home as the site
for emotional interaction, they are inspired by her multiple collections of objects with
personal meanings.
She plans to spend her time at Stiwdio Maelor gathering source material via drawing for a
new range of wallpapers that aim to bring a sense of a particular place into the domestic
sphere. She will be looking at human and natural forces as evidenced in the surrounding
landscape.
She studied fine art at University of East London and textiles at Goldsmiths, and has worked
in museum and gallery education for 20 years at the Design Museum and Hackney Museum,
and as a freelance community artist. She is currently Head of Education at the House of
Illustration.
