Hi there!

Emelie is proud to be an illustrator who highlights sustainability and the environment. Emelie is also passionate about creating products with deep ties to children and parenting.

"Emelie is a real gem. Emelie not only delivers truly beautiful illustrations with beautiful details throughout, but also collaborates in a friendly, intelligent way. Emelie is happy to accommodates feedback and always offers great ideas. Because of her work, I think my book truly shines. She is a true professional illustrator - she provides sketches before embarking on the final illustrations and also provides typesetting services. It was a real pleasure working with Emelie. Thanks again."



Emelie has a bachelor's degree in Media Technology where she has studied media design, graphic design, web publishing and digital tools in text and image editing, web and interaction design.
