Emily Bolam

Emily Bolam was born in Buckinghamshire in 1969.

She studied illustration at Brighton College of Art under the tutelage of well known illustrators John Vernon Lord and Chris McEwan. Her first idea for a children's book began as a college project and was published upon her graduation.

Since then, Emily has illustrated over a hundred books for children, by many different authors, including Georgie Adams, Vivian French and Francesca Simon. She has worked with publishers such as Penguin, Campbell Books, Orchard Books and Orion amongst many others. Emily is best known for her lively and colourful depictions of animals in pre-school and novelty formats. She illustrated the best selling first series of Buggy Buddies which has recently been re-issued in a tenth anniversary edition.

Emily continues to live and work in Brighton where she shares her studio with other artists and illustrators.
