About

My name is Emma. I was born in the mid 80s and grew up in Kent in the UK. I stud­ied Ancient History at univer­sity for under­grad, and then Sequen­tial Design (illus­tra­tion, anim­a­tion, design and book arts) as a post­grad. After living in Brighton and London I returned to Kent in 2017.

How do you get to travel so much? Why do you visit so many obscure places?

As a day job I work for a schools programme in cent­ral Europe, where I visit schools to run work­shops. Often the schools are in non-tour­ist areas, so I get to see lots of differ­ent places I wouldn’t other­wise have visited.

What writers do you like?

My three all-time favour­ites are Ursula le Guin, Jorge Luis Borges, and Diana Wynne Jones. In gener­al, liter­ary fiction and sci-fi.

What type of music do you like?

Weird stuff, heavy stuff. Some favour­ites are Boards of Canada, Sonic Youth, Sunn O)))), Can, Love, Godspeed, Slint.

What inspires your artwork?

Haunto­logy type stuff. Old Puffin and Penguin paper­backs. Low qual­ity pulp print­ing.

Does your cat know he’s very hand­some?

Yes
