Emily Walker


I have always had a natural love for painting and drawing since my college years. In fact, I enjoy most things with an artistic nature to it. Most of my life I have been a hairdresser, and within that industry, I have learnt makeup, special effect makeup, and then alongside it, facepainting and bodypainting. It was when my children were born and I started reading them children's picture books that I fell in love with the idea of illustrating pictures that could transport people into an imagined world with characters that are limitless. One day I hope to illustrate a picture book. I have been shortlisted in 2017 and in 2019 for the NZ Storylines Gavin Bishop Award, so I am getting close :)
