Hi, I’m Jessica Emmett. I’m a freelance illustrator based in North Oxfordshire, UK.

I initially was a conceptual photography & video artist and later moved into design and community art workshops. It wasn’t until 2009 that I put my hand to illustrating. I loved it so much in 2013 I took the leap to become a freelance illustrator full time. Find out more about my artist background on the [About Jess] page.

I am mainly known for my digitally hand drawn cute & fun comic/ cartoon style.

I am partially interested in working on children’s illustration though I work on all kinds of interesting projects. Previous commissions have included on-line comics, bespoke personal pieces, film promotion, magazine spreads and children education books.

You can see some examples of my drawings on my [Illustration] page and find helpful information on commissioning & working with me on the [Contact] page.

My previous work was informed by my personal connection to adoption as I myself am a Hong Kong/Vietnamese adoptee.

While I have moved away from adoption as the main subject of my work, I have left much of my previous work on my site, archived, as a resource as well as a reminder of what drove me to where I am. You can read more about [My Adoption Story].

I hope that you enjoy the work that I have shared with you =).
