Emily McGratten is a freelance illustrator, comic artist and printmaker from Beautiful British Columbia, currently living and working in Summerland; a wonderful Okanagan town that, contrary to its name, also participates in winter just like everyone else. She studied Illustration at OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario where she lived for eight years before moving back out west.
Emily specializes in ink and watercolour drawings and often works mixing traditional and digital media together to create her own unique style. She also draws comics and is working on becoming a somewhat decent printmaker. She rides her bike whenever she can and believes that bananas are a far more economical (and delicious!) fuel source than gasoline. From time to time Emily can be found in the northern forests of BC planting trees, and she also holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and loves books, trees, bicycles and adventures.
