Emily is from Brussels and writes bios for herself in the third person cos it looks way more professional. She went to London to do a foundation degree in art & design, instantly hated it, so decided to do a BA in Russian instead and spent a year living in a commune in the middle of the Russian forest.

She graduated with a First from University College London in 2014, and now works full-time as a cartoonist.

In 2016 Emily’s comic 'Bloodlust & Bonnets' was shortlisted for the prestigious Observer/Jonathan Cape Graphic Short Story Prize and her short comic “So You’re Voting Tory” was published in The Corbyn Comic Book by Self Made Hero in September 2017.
