Hi, I'm Emily ✸
I'm a freelance Illustrator based in Lisbon, Portugal. Narrative art and storytelling are definitely my happy place. I specialize in illustrations for editorial and middle grade publishing projects such as, books, graphic novels and comics.
I have a small studio in my attic, where I play and create art. On my desk I have watercolor, acrylic tubes, pastel oil crayons, ink, markers on hand, books and plants. I work with both traditional and digital media and get inspiration from the rain, books and quite nights.
After working mainly as a graphic designer for 4 years, I discovered my passion for visual storytelling and became a full time Illustrator artist. I'm currently working on my first picture book and hope to present it next year at the Bologna Children's Book Fair.
I am looking for new opportunities and want to focus especially on graphic novels, comics and editorial illustration for middle grade content.
Do you have a project in mind?
Can't wait to know about it.
