It was a project she began during lockdown, after her grandad sadly passed away from cancer. Emily wanted to do something positive and give back to the very people who had looked after him during his final days. With vibrant, positive illustrations to "try and bring a bit of brightness to a dark time", there are only a few left as she's sold seven so far, raising more than £200 for charity.

After we were told to "stay at home" and protect lives and the NHS, Emily's new job also fell through, so she has now gone freelance. Clients include The Leadmill, Cathedral Archer Project, Printed By Us, and The Scout Association.
