Having had Emma at our Girls Club events we were thrilled with the response of our guests. The live illustration proved to be the most popular activity of the evening. Emma’s style is so unique, and a real treasure for guests to be able to take home with them. Emma is also really professional, we couldn’t recommend her highly enough

Having Emma at our party made it so much more of an event. People loved getting their pictures done, the area around Emma was busier than the bar!

Emma’s drawings are so beautiful and she does them all with such speed! Cannot recommend her enough for any occasion.
