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. I’m a professional working for a national UK based organisation.  I love nothing more than visiting new places (often with my two little ones, firmly in tow), 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.

Sketchbooking supports me realise my creative potential, develop my artistic style and voice, creates space in my day and improves well being as well as documents my days without the use of words.

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 (you can to), to raising awareness of the places I see, and the communities of extraordinary people I meet!

I hope, if anything, you are inspired to join my sketchbook community, pick up your paper and pencil and learn to draw with me.

Or maybe you’d just like to sit back and indulge a while.

Whatever your choice join me!
