Emily Kalina graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2003 with a degree in Illustration and immediately entered the gallery world in which she exhibited and sold her signature style of layered, textured, and patterned watercolors. As a young watercolor artist Kalina always had an eye for the interplay of color, texture and layering. This innate skill quickly evolved and expanded as in 2009 as she left the gallery world to pursue the exciting world of print and textile design. Using her watercolors as a basis for her prints, she combines her sharp eye for trends with an innate sense of color and style to produce vibrant designs that are appealing to a wide variety of clientele.
Kalina successfully transformed her 14 years of layered and textured watercolors into best selling scarves and a variety of products for Nine West Dress, Michael Kors, Barney’s New York, Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Elie Tahari, Nordstrom, Target and TJX to name a few.
Kalina currently licenses her artwork with The World Art Group, a leading art producer providing original artwork and on demand custom and design printing for large retail and online business as well as the hospitality industry. You can find her work on Amazon, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, prints.com, art.com, allposters.com, icanvas.com, Sears, and Fulcrum Gallery among many others. In addition to wall art she sells her own line of scarves, products, and prints through her website.
