Embers and Ink

I am a freelance artist and illustrator!

Hello! My name is Emma and I am an Artist and Illustrator living in Sheffield.

For the longest time my art was just a hobby - something that I thought I couldn't ever do for my job. I didn't do art at uni, instead I studies English Literature and loved it, but after that choice I thought that was it for my art career. No art degree no art career huh?

So after many years working lots of jobs from an admin assistant at a publishing house, to many retail and retail management positions, my art petered away even as a hobby.

After being made redundant from retail, I retrained as a teaching assistant for Primary children, and that's where I remembered my love of art!

Heading out to the Peak District one day I was confronted with a rainbow and had an overwhelming urge to draw it! It was back! My love of art had returned and I haven't looked back from that day! Any you know what? It turns out that you don't need an art degree to have an art career - you've just got to love art!

I am lucky enough to be able to share my skills as a teacher on Skillshare. If you would like to see my classes and get two months free access to Skillshare to boot, you can follow this link: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/emmawoodthorpe
