Summary

Emma Welch is a Concept Artist with a special interest in character and costume design. She has illustrated for freelance tabletop RPG games such as Draculola, but is currently looking for full-time employment.

Emma loves digging deep into history and culture to create unique designs that serve the narrative or mechanics of a game. She believes in pushing visual boundaries to create a memorable experience for the player.

When she isn’t drawing and writing, she is as likely to be nose-deep in a book as going on a walk through the woods.
