Emma Preston, grew up reading comics and watching cartoons like most children. But she loved them so much that she really wanted to join the creative industry as an illustrator or an animator. This inspired Emma to continually create images, using many techniques as she developed her style.
Emma’s first professional book was ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’ published by Era Publications. She illustrated this book during the final year of her degree at the University of South Australia. Emma says, “I was fortunate to enter the field of illustration so quickly.”
Emma now lives on the Fleurieu Peninsular, just outside of Adelaide in South Australia. The natural surroundings are an ongoing inspiration for her work.
