Emilie Inger Camilla Branford

Newcastle Univeristy Fine Art Graduate, Illustrator and Animator

Emilie Inger Camilla Branford, born 1998, is a multidisciplinary artist and animator from Kent. She graduated from Newcastle University in 2020 with a First Class BA Honours in Fine Art.

At university, Emilie explored Jungian 'Shadow Theory' and the human psyche, by creating an alter ego she named 'Twoshoes'.

'Twoshoes' allowed Emilie to discuss the human experience within her work. She believes that to appreciate the lightness and beauty in life, it is paramount to express the universal darkness of humanity.

During the winter lockdown of 2020, Emilie was inspired to delve back into her childhood memories in order to escape the harsh realities of the restrictions.

This exploration of nostalgia motivated Emilie to expand her investigation of self-portraiture by creating characters that represent aspects of her personality. By taking inspiration from the charmingly relatable animated characters that lived inside her VHS tapes, she creates a universe where she can tackle her own emotional issues and fears without judgement.
