Emily M. Eng
Emily M. Eng is a freelance illustrator based in Kirkland. She enjoys working in traditional media like watercolors, graphite and colored pencils, as well as digitally in Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop and Procreate. She finds inspiration in the natural and scientific world with a focus on being representative of real life. She loves the challenge of visually explaining complex concepts and communicating science. Often her imagery revolves around her previous work as a marine naturalist and educator.

With over 10 years freelancing, Emily brings expertise and experience to any project. She especially likes working side-by-side with clients to bring ideas into reality.
