About Emi Hinoshita-Horley

Emi Hinoshita-Horley is a creature enthusiast with a passion for concept/character design and illustration. She is a recent graduate of Central St Martins BA Fine Art program, class of '23.


This website is a showcase of her work and serves as an introduction to her creative portfolio.

Her practice focuses on the natural world, the organic and inorganic and creature creation, taking inspiration from folktales and her Japanese heritage. She takes joy in celebrating the unloved and the grotesque.

What do the characters we create say about our cultural values? How do we navigate our realities through storytelling?

Feel free to explore her work and get in touch for collaboration opportunities.
