unique colourful art, portraits and children’s illustration
Hello, I’m Emma, an Artist and Illustrator from Lichfield, Staffordshire.
Having loved drawing and making for as long as I can remember, I chose to study Illustration at the University of the West of England, where I gained a 1st Class Hons. I subsequently worked in Arts Management for 10 years, where I was lucky to be involved with many inspiring community and arts education projects as well as experiencing some truly wonderful exhibitions and performances.
Since becoming a mother I have focussed on developing my own practice. My work is made using combination of drawing, collage, painting, photography and stitch to create a quirky, unique look. I was very fortunate to spend two years living and working in Singapore which has made a big impression on my work. I still find a great deal of inspiration from the colours and patterns of South East Asia. I am also constantly inspired by nature and the outdoors.
I welcome any enquiries about commissions, collaboration or licensing.
