Emily Brown

Emily Brown 25 England I’ve always been drawing, since as long as I can remember. I was born with a very vivid imagination, so drawing what was in my mind came naturally. As I grew older, I discovered that you could illustrate for a living and I knew that was the path for me. I have recently got a Diploma in Art and Design and am currently studying for a Degree in Illustration at Northbrook College. I was born in Kevflavik, Iceland, then moved to Wyoming, USA and finally came to England, where I’ve lived most of my life. My biggest inspiration is life. There is such a variety of inspiration throughout the world and history. Although there are some terrible hardships, I do believe life is a beautiful gift! There are so many artists I love. One of my favourites though is Junko Mizuno. Whenever I look at her art I get a surge of inspiration. I also love Josephine Wall, Rossetti, Mucha, Peter Max, Rumiko Takahashi and Audrey Kawasaki. I’m also very inspired by vintage manga from the 60’s and 70’s. I also enjoy dressmaking, playing the piano, reading, baking and computer games. I collect Asian ball-jointed dolls and I love customizing them. My religion is also important and means the world to me. My Favourite:- Magazine: Imagine FX, Awake!
