Emma is an illustrator working out of Toronto, Canada specializing in children’s illustration, visual story telling and character design. She is a graduate of OCADU’s drawing and painting program, as well as obtained a BFA in illustration from Sheridan College. She loves the natural world, every kind of dog, and collecting books that pile up. She grew up reading Grosset and Dunlap’s Famous Dog and Horse Stories (anything with dogs and horses really), Goosebumps, Highlights, Animal Ark, Black Beauty, Beano comics, the Little House series and much more.

Although she illustrates primarily for children and loves cute and heartwarming scenes, Emma is a huge fan of horror movies and books and generally spooky things, and would love to illustrate for a fun halloween project!
