Ever since she was a little child, Emilie Maguin has scribbled, drawn and painted. While wax crayons were her first love, she now enjoys watercolour, pen and ink, and digital technologies to bring her work to life.
Born in the United Kingdom but raised in southern France, Emilie has also lived and worked from Scotland and Switzerland and is soon to be a new Brisbane resident. Her work is whimsical and feminine, and often populated by funny little critters who think they're people.Strong influences include Arthur Rackham, Beatrix Potter, the Preraphaelites, Gustav Klimt and Odilon Redon.
Emilie Maguin has been working full time as an illustrator and artist since 2009. Her artistic training was acquired in Aix-en Provence,France from 2000 to 2004, after which she moved to Scotland and graduated with a Master's degree in Art History and Italian from the University of St Andrews in 2009.
