About Me...

Me in my favorite peep toe heels in my home studio

The Girl:

Hi! My name is Kristina Emma Hultkrantz. I am an illustrator, dreamer, dancer, dog lover, doodler, domestic goddess, and a major girly girl.

Born 1984...I grew up in the States. Gorgeous Portland, Maine to be exact. I had a perfect all American childhood taking ballet classes, climbing trees, making crafts worthy of the refrigerator, attending Little League games and cookouts all the while in a Swedish bubble. (My parents are both Swedes and moved to America just before I was born, I've got duel citizenship and can speak both English and Swedish fluently, isn't that neat?) My family and I have also spent some time in way too hot Tampa, Florida where I got quite a few sunburns and a BFA degree. One year after graduating college I bought a one way ticket to live and create in my dream city, rather chilly Stockholm, Sweden in 2008. Stockholm made all my dreams come true. It's my dream city, I worked my way to my dream job, freelance illustrating, and even met the boy of my dreams to top it all off.

The Brand:

My brand of girly illustrations EmmaKisstina was born in 2007 with the hope to spread girly girl illustration love all over the internet  and world and are available on Etsy and Swedish site
November 2011, my first collection of illustrated silk scarves was released with 8 unique designs and are also available through my two stores.

If you are a store owner and are interested in wholesale purchasing my prints or scarfs, please contact me here:

The Blog:

This blog is a place for me to share my life as a freelance illustrator. Whether to show off new works or completed commissioned projects, favorite recipes, inspirational photos, favorite places in Stockholm or tips for other freelancers. I hope you get to know the girl behind the illustrations and hope you'll enjoy following me as I work my dream job in my dream city.

The Rest:

I am always available for custom illustrations, collaborations, or just a nice chat.
