A little bit about Emma Ball...

Established many moons ago (22 years) by Emma, who just wanted to paint nice pictures. Well, actually more than many moons if you happen to count the years she painted, designed and hand cut stencils to pop onto plant pots! After a visit to Venice, Emma had a yearning to go back to her student Graphic Design roots and illustrate in watercolours once again. So it all began in 2001- having stands at craft shows alongside her Dad with the pots and Emma with her paintings- going on to take a trade stand at the Autumn Fair. It grew from a few mad ideas and a plant pot!

With a warehouse on the outskirts on Nottingham City Centre, Emma still runs the business with the help of thirteen other staff (Mum and Dad still help out), who have all become quite a team! The warehouse is jammed of lovely products and also quite a few old exhibition stands she canna bear to part with as she remembers each and every one of the good, bad and downright ugly trade events! Thankfully there aren’t many ugly ones now!! ;0)

Emma's Products

All her products are designed with a smile over her two Nottingham studios – one at home where her cats help out and one in the offices/ warehouse, where she can be found working with her Freddy Mercury loving sidekick – Sharon!

Emma loves other artworks, and introduced other artists to the fold- starting with Shelly Perkings, then Eric Heyman, Caroline Cleave, Abigail Mill and most recent- Susie Lacome.

The Team

The office houses Lucy- who is passionately in charge of sales, and has the title of Sales Manager Extraordinaire on her name badge for shows. Then there is Chris making sure stock control and the warehouse runs smoothly. Katie runs sales sales admin and Megan is in charge of accounts and chasing money!  Then there is Mick (Dad), June (mum) and Carol in the packing room- all very much responsible for making sure the shelves are stocked and goods presented beautifully! Finally- last but very not least are Gordon, Matt (who clocks up over 10,000 steps a day), Dan and Jordan.

Emma and gang!!
