My name is Emma and I am a driven creative, living and breathing picture books. I have been drawing and creating stories for as long as I can remember, but doing the MA in children’s book illustration has really refined my technique and boosted my confidence.
In 2014 I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Illustration from UCA, and until the MA, I ran a children’s arty-party business and taught in a reception class, which is where most of my ideas began.
I would define my work as linear and expressive, and sprinkled with irony and playfulness. I definitely create my best work when I am having fun with the process, and probably making a mess too!
