Welcome to Emily’s notebook. Thank you for landing here!

….A little bit about me. I was born and raised in London and San Francisco, and now live in the South Yorkshire market town of Doncaster. Having said that, you’d be lucky to find me ‘at home’ as my passion for travel and exploring means I’m not in one place for very long!

I’m fluent in Polish and French, and when I’m not working I love nothing more than visiting new places (often with my two little ones, firmly in tow), cooking for friends & family, meeting new people and sketching as many precious moments as I can. One thing is sure, I’m never without a notebook indoors and out and have kept some sort of a journal for over 20 years!

I like to think that my drawings show things as they are. In a world that is becoming increasingly polarised we sometimes forget to capture those unique insights into life’s finer details.

Emily’s Notebook is packed full of drawings, watercolours and ideas that bring the people, the landscapes, townscapes, and daily journey through life alive. I’m keen to share everything from the art techniques I use to make this happen, to raising awareness of the places I see, and the communities of extraordinary people I meet!

I hope, if anything you can sit back and indulge a while.
