Hi, I’m Emma Henderson and I live and work in Glasgow, Scotland. I am a designer and illustrator who loves to create products as well as illustrate and design patterns.

My company Showpony is where I produce printed textiles in the form of bags, cushions, wheat warmers, and many other household items. Often produced in our studio, these items have been sold all over the world from wonderful boutiques to larger retailers such as Anthropologie, Paperchase, Urban Outfitters and Le Bon Marché.

The purpose of this blog is to showcase illustration and pattern designs without the restrictions of what can be screen printed in our studio (hint, we only print in one colour!). Expect to see more colour, detailed patterns and quirky illustrations, all available for license.  Previous clients include Urban Outfitters, Graham, and Brown and We are What We Do.

When I’m not busy with Showpony, designing a new product or creating a new pattern I love to spend time with my husband and our wee boy walking and exploring new places with the dog.

Oh yeh, and I’m a bit obsessed with horses. One day we will live in the country and I will ride every day.
