I’m Emily. I studied BA Surface Pattern at Leeds College of Art and started writing a children’s book during my time there. I continued to study MA Illustration in order to complete this project, writing and illustrating my own children’s book. The story involves a princess named Mildred who gets cursed with spots before the day of her wedding. She travels to the furthest corners of her magical land to seek help, encountering many magical creatures along the way.

My writing style is humorous, mixing the modern day with classic fairytale ideas. I hope that my illustrations communicate this.

My style incorporates pencil drawing, collage, watercolour and digital techniques. I like the excitement found in the unexpected, the delicateness of line and the abstract qualities obtained from mixing different techniques.

After my MA I want to travel and continue to draw the things I love.
