    We've had our eye on Richmond visual artist Emerald Grippa since we first discovered her Tumblr a few months ago. Her drawings and paintings comprise everything we like to see in our favorite works of art — all at once quirky and striking, but also unabashedly feminine.

While her visuals are compelling, it's her second collection of luscious printed silk scarves that's got us excited this time around. All printed with her own renderings, it's hard to pick a favorite: Do you go bold and graphic, with a geometric moth-wing design, or elegant and colorful, with a green kaleidoscopic print? We talked to Grippa about how her upbringing influenced her art, what she loves about designing scarves, and what Richmond brings to the table for its young creatives.
