About The Yellow House

The Yellow House

A mix of illustration, design, print and craft!

Hello. My name is Emma McCann and I'm an award winning freelance illustrator, part time library assistant, sporadic painter/print maker, occasional cake baker and regular mess maker. I live near the sea in Cornwall in the UK and work from my attic studio where my ideas are scribbled, inked, Wacom'd, splashed, printed and Photoshopped into existence.

I studied illustration at Kingston University, London, and my second children’s picture book was longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2005. I've since illustrated many titles for a wide variety of publishers and clients including Ladybird, Oxford University Press, Girlguiding, Bear Grylls Ventures and Usborne. I'm rather fond of sneaking self portraits and/or bunny slippers into my illustrations. As you can probably guess, I love books and you can often find me making a fool of myself preaching the good gospel of the library to local school children.

My drawing and crafting is usually fuelled by tea and scones; I feel it is my right and proper duty to undertake scientific research into Cornwall's best cream tea and I take it very, very seriously.

You can follow me on Instagram at @emmamccann, or Twitter @cooliobeanz, or visit my illustration website at www.emmamccann.co.uk. I'm usually wittering on about something on there, and they are the best places to find out about new items that are about to hit the shop floor.
