Hello! My name is Emma and I am an artist from Barcelona currently based in Glasgow.
My passion is illustration; I grew up in a family of artists (my great grandfather painted churches in Spain, my grandad boards for movie theatres in the 50's and as far as I remember my mum has always been painting), so from a very young age I have been surrounded by paints and brushes (and stains!).
Although my career took me to work as a doctor and scientist, I kept an interest in art and design my whole life. So it was not a big surprise when in 2021 I left my research in the lab to work as a freelance illustrator.
My work aims to tell stories that can move the viewer and make them think, dream and imagine. I specially enjoy illustrating scenes of every day life and bringing to life more difficult issues such as feelings and mental health. Because of my scientific background, I have and special interest in children's science non-fiction and have been involved in science communication projects.
I also have experience running creative workshops with children and developing educational materials aimed at families for museums and research centres.
My clients include Scottish Book Trust, The Hunterian Art Gallery, the Advanced Research Centre at the University of Glasgow, Mighty Kind magazine, Lifeology and LIFE Ascent.
When I am not drawing or painting I like to spend my days playing board games with my family, watching a movie or just daydreaming.
