Hi there! My name is Emily, and I'm a children's book illustrator and educational designer based out of Chicago. I love to make anything that helps kids to learn and grow, and currently work as a product designer at McGraw Hill.
I graduated with a BFA in illustration from the Ringling College of Art and Design, and am an active member of the Illinois regional chapter of SCBWI. My work is joyful, energetic, full, and usually has some sort of little critter in it.
I also love improv comedy, theatre, sustainability, and collecting trinkets of all sizes (I recently acquired my 75th pressed penny!). When I'm not working on a project, you can usually find me outside or spending time with my Betta fish, Jeremy.

Thanks for stopping by!
I'm represented by Taj McCoy at Rees Literary Agency
