Emily’s day in illustrations

Illustrator Emily Isabella lives with her husband in a one-room cottage in the woods, at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, US, about 150 km northwest of New York City. “It’s basically just my studio with a bed and an oven,” says Emily. “My husband is currently building a three-story house on the other side of the river; it will have room for my studio on the top floor and the first floor will house his furniture-making business.” Emily’s cat is called Omelette and the mug she drinks coffee from was a wedding gift. “It holds a lot of coffee, I think that’s why I love it so much.”
