Incase you didn’t read the illustration above, I will introduce myself, I’m EMVY, well, Michelle in every day life but you can call me either, as long as you don’t pronounce ‘Michelle’ wrong! It’s ME-shell, not mih-SHELL or muh-SHELL, can you tell this annoys me often?!
I am an artist and illustrator, with 15 years experience in art & design. I have designed for a variety of clients and companies and even a few celebrities! Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) being a particular highlight.
In recent years i’ve moved away from art and design a little and more into Illustration, recently doing an MA in Illustration at Falmouth University.
I love illustration, I mostly illustrate kids books and teen novels but I’ve illustrated everything including clothing, packaging, editorial, products, I even draw on the walls – which annoys my husband!
As much as I love illustrating children’s stories my dream has always been to have my own brand and shop with products I have designed, I love seeing people wear things I have created.
My brand combines my love of drawing with mostly adult humour to create things that will make people smile.
At 19 I started my first business, designing and selling t-shirts and accessories, I’m sure my models will cringe to see these photos resurface (right) but it’s part of how I got to where I am today and I think it’s important to look back and see how far you’ve come.
In my early 20’s I got married and I had three little girls, Phoebe, Livvy and Scarlett which put things on hold for a while but now they’re grown up and at school I have the time to properly launch my brand.
I hope that my work puts a smile on your face.. if it does, it’s been a success.
