Emma Garrod


Originally from the North of England (near Newcastle) I am continuously inspired by the variety of everyday life – documenting each day through sketchbooks from my travels. My passion for art originated from an early age, I remember spending many hours watercolour painting with my Dad/art buddy. Unfortunately he is no longer here (passed away from cancer in May 2016). However I am determined to make him proud and succeed with my career.

I am a recent graduate from the Cambridge MA programme in Children’s Book Illustration. After gaining a First for Animation in Cardiff and a year studying at the Academy of Art in San Francisco USA.

I am influenced by many artists from Quentin Blake, Iain McCaig, Oliver Jeffers to Kim Jung Gi and specialise in pen and watercolours.

Available for commission work.
