About Me

EmmaEmma Allen is a freelance children's book Illustrator based in Kent. Emma graduated with Distinction after studying illustration at the London Art College, having also won the 'Student of the Year' award 2012. 

Emma enjoys illustrating a variety of subjects, but perhaps most of all children, animals, quirky characters and all forms of plant life from tiny toadstools to towering trees - it is no surprise that Emma takes a lot of inspiration from the natural world and all of its wonders. Emma illustrates digitally, with a background in traditional watercolour techniques, and finds great enjoyment in the little details and quirks that bring an illustration to life.
