M. Noelle Studios is the complete work of Emily Arlington. Emily was born in rural Ohio where she taught herself to both knit and crochet. Her love of drawing and painting led her to pursue a life in New York City. She received an Associates degree in Illustration from the Fashion Institute of Technology before switching to Textile/Surface Design for her Bachelors of Fine Arts.
Emily began exploring her love of pattern after accepting a job for Duck Brand duct tape where she created hundreds of tiny, heart-warming prints. After this, she went on to pursue other opportunities in both fashion and home textiles.
Emily currently resides in New York City designing charming textiles, clever illustrations, and brainstorming new ideas!
