Emily Owens
photographer

Who are you and what type of creative are you?
Hi, I’m Emily! I’m a photographer specializing in editorial/portrait work.

What made you interested in photography? What made you want to do
it professionally?
Way back in 2005, I had a friend who’d been given a Nikon Coolpix 3200. He never used it, so I asked if I could have it on indefinite loan. I kept this camera in my purse and I’d shoot everything possible— parties, bugs, patterns. Eventually I kept finding excuses to upgrade my camera until, in 2010, I realized I really just needed to go back to school because shooting was the thing that made me happiest. And it still does.

I’m a 20 year old illustrator based in Scotland. I enjoy drawing things for children’s books and book covers, or anything that involves creating characters.

How did you get interested in illustration?
I’ve always enjoyed drawing since I was very young, but I only started considering it as a career in my late teens when I took a class in visual communication.

Kemi Mai
illustrator

WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT TYPE OF CREATIVE ARE YOU? My name is Kemi Mai and I’m a self-taught artist based in the UK.


HOW DID YOU GET INTERESTED IN DIGITAL ILLUSTRATION/PAINTING? I bought a tablet with the intent to use it for something else entirely, but somehow I ended up painting. It was kind of accidental. I didn’t draw at all when I was a kid, but my interest really began to snowball after those first few months, when I realised that creating art was both something I enjoyed and something I could improve at. I’ve been painting for almost two years now.

Kelsey Beckett
illustrator

Who are you and what type of creative are you?
My name is Kelsey Beckett and I’m an illustrator. I tend to lean more toward fine art, but the possibilities in illustration are very appealing as well.


Have you always been interested in art and being creative?
Yes. When I was little I was obsessed with watching cartoons and trying to draw them. My brothers also played a lot of video games with characters that astounded me. So my obsession with people and figures came very early on. My most vibrant memory of creativity revolves around Sailor Moon. It was the first Anime I had ever seen, and the style took me over. I watched it every day and tried to draw the characters. If I hadn’t been so surrounded by art (in the form of cartoons,) I don’t think I would be in the same place today.
