Emily was raised on a steady diet of animated films and comic books that built a life-long love of storytelling through art. She studied illustration at Brigham Young University in Utah, where she loved to paint the mountains. Emily likes to draw characters with fun personalities and complement them with detailed surroundings. She especially likes to imagine down-to-earth characters in fantastic scenarios, and see where the action leads.
Emily currently lives in Boston with her husband and son, where her hobbies include sketching the interesting characters she meets on the street and admiring old churches. She aspires to paint cover images for her favorite fantasy novels and to travel to Italy (where she will also sketch interesting characters and admire old churches).
Emily is looking for opportunities to work on book covers and game art, with a particular interest in historical and fantasy themes.
