Biography

Emma's vision is to share her art with like minded people- her mission, to make them smile. She doesn't take herself too seriously, and while she paints serious paintings, there is always a sense of fun in her work, from monsters to illustrations.

inspiration

Emma is inspired by the world around her- over the years she has created her own world of monsters, and invites people in to enjoy it too, but she is also inspired by her obsession with swimming especially outdoors, and this is apparent in her paintings and a lot of her illustrations.

medium

Emma describes herself as an Illustrator and Maker of Monsters. Fro the monsters, she uses fabrics, that are sculpted into one of a kind monster plushes- designed by Emma. The monsters then have an illustrated story card explaining a little about them- for example- "Dave loves wild swimming but usually forgets his trunks so he has to swim nude"

Fro her illustration work, Emma generally works in pen and watercolour- with the occasional bit of acrylic on the top. She often draws on top of maps, to create themes and stories, and also produces illustrative commissions.
