Hi, I'm Emily!
Emily Small is an illustrator, graphic artist, and rug maker of playful art goods. Originally from New Hampshire, she has found home in the mossy quadrants of Portland, OR where she has honed her artistic style for the past 10 years. Her hand drawn designs focus on pattern-play, punchy color blocking, and roundy shapes with lots of personality, shown through unpretentious yet bold line work. Emily’s work is sold under the moniker Beetle Ink Co.!
Beetle Ink Co. products are 100% hand drawn by Emily on her tablet. If she's unable to produce a product on her own, she partners with local small businesses to make her vision come to life!
When Emily isn't drawing, she can be found playing fetch with her cat, giggling with her pals in thrift stores, weeding her flower garden, or chowing down on some noodles. Subscribe to the email newsletters to learn more about Emily!
