Ema Frost is an Auckland based graphic artist, illustrator and ceramic designer.

Ema Frost is inspired by the legends and mythologies of Maori and Japanese folklore that have been the muse of her imagination since she was a young girl. Ema marries the two cultures with harmonious cohesion giving her work its signature dreamlike style. The enchanting creatures that feature in her images do not exist on the page alone. They are multi-dimensional characters that live in a world of harmony and balance. Each character has their own genealogy and set of charmed characteristics making them unique to the world they live in.

Ema continually experiments with vibrant colours and often loses herself in the magical detail of her pieces. Looking closely at her images one catches sight of dreamlike reflections and mischievous characters peeking out from unsuspecting places.

Ema has also received several awards and has had solo and group exhibitions throughout New Zealand, and a selection of her work is currently available in several Galleries across Aotearoa.

Ema is currently working on writing and illustrating a children's book and hopes to have this turned in to a animated film.
