Emilie Simpson is a Canadian illustrator and fine artist. She studied Fine Art at the Ontario College of Art and Design and Sheridan College and studied Graphic Design at Durham College. Her illustration have appeared in several publications including Canada's Style at Home magazine, Canadian Gardening, Food & Drink and Food Network magazine, to name a few. Emilie strives to create imagery that conveys a balance of both whimsy and beauty. She takes influence from the things that surround her in everyday life and finds interest in the complex forms and creatures of the natural world. Most of her work is created with the use of pencil, gouache and watercolour on paper and occasionally attempts larger works with acrylic on canvas. Emilie works out of her small, home based studio in Bowmanville, Ontario.
