Emma Niemans
Amsterdam based graphic designer and artist.

While studying for my bachelor of design at the University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU) I made a big fall from the stairs, landing on my head. After the accident resulting in a traumatic brain injury, I regained a strong passion for traditional art & photography. For me, it’s a great way to process everything that is different now. Especially on days that I can’t be behind the computer enough for design work; I like to focus on working with copic markers, colored pencils, graphite and acrylics.
