Hey, I'm Emma! Your Chief Escape Artist.
In 2015 I started Black Chalk Collective as my little creative space on the web where I could make art and escape the daily grind of my corporate job. Thanks to the power of the internets, my little hobby soon turned into a fully fledged biz, helping others escape the stressful moments in life through art, and having a lil fun while we're at it.
The BCC fam has since grown to include Penultimate Magazine, a bi-monthly digital magazine on all things lettering and calligraphy, Palettiquette, an online watercolour school with monthly classes, and most recently The Watercolour Factory, my range of artist-grade handmade watercolours to help bring your creations to life.
When I'm not doing all of the above, I'm proudly representing Winsor and Newton and Princeton Artist Brushes here in Australia as an ambassador, instructing brush lettering classes as a Top Teacher on Skillshare, and going into bookstores to tell random customers "oh wow, that Brush Lettering from A to Z book by Emma Witte is SO GOOD! You should get it!" I also spend a significant amount of time swooning over my two furbabies, Rhodie and Leo.
Although 95% of my time is dedicated to helping other creatives find and unleash their inner artist, I occasionally work with brands on social media campaigns, custom artwork and event activations. Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to do the same.
Some of the fab brands and businesses I've worked with in the past include M&M’S Australia, West Elm, Brita Water, Officeworks, Milligram, Skillshare, Artline AU/NZ, Prime Super, Royal Talens, Business Chicks, Da Vinci Gourmet, Northland Shopping Centre and the RCSA – and I would love to work with you, too!
