Emmi Ojala-horizontal profile picture


I am Emmi, an illustrator and graphic designer,
who spent her early years as a guerilla artist in Finland,
making paper installations with masking tape
and using her family’s fireplace as a source of drawing supplies.

Today, I am based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands,
where I draw and live in symbiosis with Photoshop.

I collect children’s books from around the world,
and my dream is to add as many self-illustrated
publications to that collection as possible.
