Hello! My name is Emily.
I’m a freelance Illustrator and mixed media Artist based in the UK.
I love bright colours, vibrant patterns and creating expressive characters full of personality. Bears and moose are my absolute ideal subject matter, but I’ll paint pretty much anything (with the exception of bicycle riding horses of course).
I studied Visual Communication: Illustration at Birmingham City University where I gained a First Class Honours degree and fell in love with narrative illustration and story telling.
My work is created using a mixture of traditional media (watercolour, gouache, ink and crayons) and digital (Photoshop).
