Emma Green is a contemporary illustrator working within the Children’s Picture Book and Surface Design industries based in Bournemouth UK. Emma enjoys stylistically experimenting with pattern, texture and colour rendering both by hand and through digital software. Her process involves experimenting with cut out collage and paper craft techniques and then enhancing these elements through rendering digitally. Her work is inspired by the
world around her and the creatures in it. She enjoys experimenting with narrative and interacting with her characters. She inquisitively explores different characters she comes across in her everyday life
to help influence her own characters. Her work aims to engage the
audience in a playful and light hearted way to make the audience
smile. Childhood play and imagination influences her ideas creating
naïve like illustrated elements creating a contemporary aesthetic.
Her work is on the cutting edge of contemporary practice.
