About

Hello! I'm Emily Cheeseman, an illustrator inspired by fantasy, folklore, and tales of adventure. Once a graphic designer by trade, I now work as a freelance artist based out of Orlando, Florida.

I focus on bold shapes and rich color in my work, and my favorite stories are classic swords-and-sorcery fantasy and historical fiction with magical or anachronistic twists. I also design various items and accessories inspired by classic RPGs, which you can find in my online shop.

Outside of work I'm an archer, I play a lot of D&D, and I love a good oak tree.

I am represented by Kurestin Armada at Root Literary: kurestin@rootliterary.com
