About Me

Hello, My names Emma ! I'm an Illustrator & Graphic Designer.

I live just outside of Manchester. I graduated from University in 2013 where I studied Graphic Design and Illustration.

These are some of my illustrations =]

I live with my boyfriend Matthew and our Beautiful Black Labrador Ozzy. We bought our home in March 2014 and are slowly but surely getting it decorated to how we want it. I have my own craft room where I express all my creativity, write to my pen pals and put together my swaps. I have just started to add the postcards and pieces of art I have been receiving to my walls. So if you have anything that is Art / Illustration / Design related that I can put up on my wall it would be much appreciated.

I LOVE anything Bright and Colourful, Cute, Sexy or Scary ! I had an unnatural obsession with Cat In The Hat, Disney and Books.

I adore writing to people and getting to know the different cultures and there interests which is why I have been pen palling for over 3 years now. I mainly write to people from the UK but I also have international penpals.

I'm obsessed with paper any type of paper and pens ! I love hoarding craft stuff I have a set of plastic draws full of stuff and several boxes.

Well thats a little about me and I hope to be swapping with a few if not most of you in the future !

I'm soo excited !

Favorite Books

I have a big thing for books and always have done.

From the Harry Potter Series to The House of Night Series. I love anything fantasy majority of my books are fantasy vampire books, but I also have fairies, werewolf and of course my Design and Illustration books.

I'm currently working towards creating my own little library. I go to the local charity shop everyday to check what new books they have in. I've bought so many over the last couple of month's.

Favorite Movies

Favorite Crafts

I love to draw which leads me to making Notecards and Postcards. I like to hand create Postcards also.

Creating Journals and Traveling Notebooks is a new one for me resently. I sharing and creating for others to have as a keep sake.

Comment: I was sorting thru a box of mail and found your swap. So sorry for the delay in rating you. One of my goals for 2017 is to be more organized. I hate see thru floors and very high buildings too I'd love to see a cross stitch ATC. It sounds adorable. And what's Marzipan? And what does a rural surveyor do?
