benconservato on indie art & design

Emma Kidd brings intriguing characters to life in her original artworks, goccos, postcards & prints. She has an incredible portfolio and we are thrilled to offer a selection of her works for sale. In many of her pieces, we see portraits of monsters - curious & playful, strange & shy. At other times, we see characters in their environments - different imaginings of the natural world, or darker, more sinister spaces where twisted tales are unfolding.
Emma Kidd is an Australian artist, illustrator, printmaker, photographer who spends most of her time creating things. She studied textiles and design at one point in her life, and find that this part of her still needs to also be expressed at times. The name "benconservato" refers to "well preserved" in Italian.
