About Emma

"Every child should see themselves reflected in a story"

Emma Danielle Clements

Emma is an illustrator that lives in South Yorkshire (UK) with her husband, two children and cat. Emma has been deaf since she was three years old and from a very young has loved drawing.

At times it was easier to draw all of her feelings, this has inspired her within her creative practice to illustrate emotional narratives and stories.
Emma has a lifetime watching the visual world around her, seeing emotions, changes in mood and the way people interact, this is something she brings into her work.

Her work is almost lyrical and flows like visual sounds.

Emma is a multidisciplinary artist, illustrator and author. Emma uses expressive and playful lines, she uses both traditional and digital techniques while experimenting with marks and textures. Emma's work space is a nomad style in the family home, working when, and wherever possible.

Stories are essential, messages of healing and empowerment within books are a core drive and passion for Emma. Her learning of the world from books, and being influenced by many sources from a young age enabled her to grow with empathy and an open mind. But, more stories are needed from all walks of life. In order to grow as an illustrator and author, is important to listen to the many and for this reason, Emma is working with Sheffield Flourish as a volunteer.

Emma is in the final few months of her BA (HONS) illustration degree with the Open Collage of Arts, Emma was a part of the AOI (Association of Illustrators) 2022 mentorship program. In 2021 attended a traineeship run by Touretteshero for "Future Scribers" and clients include Liberty Festival (2022) and Virgin Media.

"I would like to create stories, that are not just about what makes people "different" or the "barriers" they face but also normalising diversity within main characters that go beyond the barriers."
