Kristina Hultkrantz, the illustrator behind EmmaKisstina, creates girly prints that define our obsession with all that is opulent, desirable and fashionable. Everything from makeup to high fashion, to French macarons and cupcakes, femininity pervades through every print.
All illustrations and textiles are hand drawn and thereafter digitally colored by Kristina, in her little home studio in Stockholm, Sweden.
Hi! I'm Kristina Hultkrantz, the girly-girl behind EmmaKisstina Illustration.
EmmaKisstina was born one year after I graduated college with a BFA degree, and a portfolio full of work I wasn't really connected to or proud of; it was also just plain weird. I didn't want to give up on the dream of working with art full time so I finally decided to create simple illustrations in my favorite medium (pen & paper) with a touch of digital to make my illustrations available at a price point anyone could afford.
My first illustration for EmmaKisstina was of the iconic fragrance Chanel N°5 , which I drew on my bedroom floor in 2007. I never thought that first simple illustration would turn into a full time illustration career just three short years later, but I'm sure glad it did!
All my illustrations tend to be feminine and portray the things we have around us, the things we like and love... or anything pink!
EmmaKisstina is a one woman show. All aspects of running this brand are completed by me, Kristina, from the comfort of my little home studio in Stockholm, Sweden. Everything from customer service to shipping, and of course the creation of my original illustrations and textile designs, are made by myself with lots of love.
