Emma Quay

Emma Quay (pronounced "kway") grew up in a village near Cambridge, England and has wanted to illustrate children's books for as long as she can remember. She drew voraciously as a child, and eventually graduated with an Honours degree in Graphic Design from Newcastle upon Tyne Polytechnic, specialising in illustration and printmaking. Shortly after leaving college a selection of Emma's illustrative work was purchased by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London for its permanent collection of prints and drawings. She continued to exhibit her monoprints and charcoal sketches, travelling to Morocco, India, Nepal and Bhutan to sketch, whilst also working as a freelance illustrator. Since moving to Sydney in 1993, Emma has illustrated a wide range of children's picture books, two of which have been short listed for the Children's Book Council of Australia's Book of the Year Awards: Bear and Chook and Daddy's Having a Horse, both written by Lisa Shanahan.
