Hello! I'm Emmeline, a freelance illustrator and author specialising in colourful, magical books and comics for young people. I'm currently working alongside my agent Thao Le on a pitch for my debut middle grade graphic novel.
I draw on my love of history, popular culture (mostly tv shows, boardgames, podcasts and videogames!), learning new things, nature, and mythology to inspire my illustration work. You'll spot a lot of strong female characters, side profiles and coral/teal colour palettes in my portfolio!
I run workshops and lectures for all ages on illustration, comics, the creative industries, and freelancing; which led to me being awarded IPSE's ‘National Freelancer of the Year’ in 2016.
I'm proud to be represented by Thao Le of The Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency, so please contact Thao with any queries about my writing, or pop an email over to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss illustration commissions, events, live illustration, or you just want to say hello!
