Hi everyone, I'm Emma, an illustrator, graphic designer and photoshop teacher living near London, UK. When I'm not illustrating, or designing websites, I'm an occasional support tutor at Central St Martins Art School in London. I love pixels as well as paint, and I'm happy to be able to share my photoshop knowledge here with a global community. That's very exciting.

I hope...
