Karin Eremia

After several years of living in Finland, Karin moved to Scotland for further professional development. She has recently graduated from an MA program in Illustration, at the Edinburgh College of Art, under the guidance of the experienced illustrator and educator Jonathan Gibbs http://www.jonathangibbs.com/. She is currently an artist in residence at the department of Illustration at the same institution, where she is encouraged to develop her professional practice in freedom, as well as tutoring when needed, both for undergraduate and master students.

In the past year and a half, Karin Eremia has exhibited in Edinburgh along many fellow illustrators based around UK.  Her work has strongly been influenced by her time spent in Scotland and has allowed her to experiment with various printmaking techniques such as relief printing, screenprinting, letterpress, monprinting and risograph. Karin’s work tends to reflect her interest in people’s stories and issues related to race, gender and social inequality.  Her MA work resulted in a picture book exploring the status of immigrants, and the role that illustration holds in improving our societies.
