Sample Class Project by Emily Cromwell

Sample Class Project by Emily Cromwell - student project

Hi there! My name is Emily and I am a 22 year old illustrator and surface designer with a love of creating happy and colorful illustrations and patterns! I have an Etsy store as well as a Spoonflower shop!

I have been creating artwork since I was a little girl, and up until college I would draw realistically, usually with watercolor or pencil. Once I was a sophomore in college, I started expanding my horizons and taught myself how to illustrate digitally, and I haven't looked back ever since!

You can see my illustrations and patterns on my website here:

I'm always sharing work in progress photos, behind the scenes shots, and finished work photos on my Instagram here:

A few fun facts about me..

  1. I'm a proud cat mom to a cat named Misty
  2. I started my own business selling handmade items and offering custom artwork when I was 16
  3. I graduated college this past May of 2016 with Magna Cum Laude honors.
  4. I love to make things, read, and drink smoothies

And one more final fact about me, I am so excited to have you in this class of mine! Here is an example project for you to see and use as a reference when posting your own project. I can't wait to see what you create!


I created a Pinterest board of beautiful flowers and butterflies that were all colorful and whimsical.
