My name is Emma Inkpen, born and bred in Yorkshire, England. Now living in Brooklin just east of Toronto with my husband and two young daughters.

After going to Ontario College of Art and Design for four
years studying Communication Design, majoring in Illustration,
I went to Humber College for one year to study Graphic Design & Pre-press.

I have worked in three design studios in Toronto starting as a Junior Designer, working up to a Senior Designer. I have had my own clients as an independent designer for over 10 years, working on a wide range of projects for several clients.

After having my first daughter, I decided to venture into the world of running my own small design studio. I work with a group of associates for larger projects, and suppliers such as printers and proofreaders. I have also been teaching part time
at a local college in their school of Media, Art and Design.

Oh yeah and the elephant in the room, ‘Inkpen’; I hear ya.
I gotta’ name with ‘Ink’ and ‘Pen’ in it. I get it all the time. It’s not a joke, or a pen name, or a fib. It’s 100% the real McCoy; it’s the genuine article; it’s beautifully, oh-so-cosmically-written fate, maybe. My maiden name was Barkworth.

Ink Pen: A pen filled from an external source and containing an ink reservoir that feeds the writing point that puts ink to paper.
