Hello, I'm Emma

emma allenI've had a love of painting and drawing since I was little, and it's still going strong! After leaving my role as Art Director at a magazine publishing company to concentrate on my growing family, I picked up my paintbrush with re-newed vigour and got creative. In 2012 I won 'Student of the Year' at the London Art College whilst studying 'Children's Book Illustration', and I now work as an Illustrator, a job that I truly love. I am based in Kent, where I live with my family, and spend my time painting, reading books with my daughter, volunteering at our local Rainbows group (Girl Guiding for 5-7 year olds) and eating the odd bit of chocolate. Okay, lots of chocolate.
