Emily Ferrand AKA Emily Eyes is a local artist based in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire.
Emily is a tattoo artist by trade and following the temporary closure of her business due to COVID-19 she found herself missing her craft which prompted her to make her first piece as a way to pass the time.
After posting her work on social media people immediately showed interest in buying a print. She quickly sourced supplies to make her first batch and demand kept coming.
“The attention they got brought me so much happiness” said Emily, “The messages I have received to say how much people love hanging them in their home makes me feel heart-warmed”.
“The View from the Afternoon” is one of Emily’s favourite pieces. It’s the view from her favourite local pub, which is conveniently located on the corner of her street. The piece was made during lockdown as she was missing one of her favourite spots to catch a beer, watch the sea and watch the people.
She snuck in the iconic mouse and moon illumination and guzzled a pint of dark fruit. Emily can’t wait to sit here once again with good company and a crisp one. Her other pieces also feature Grimsby and Cleethorpes views and memories combined with lyrics from her favourite songs.
