About Me, Emily Leary

I'm an Appalachian artist with a passion for storytelling. Growing up in the Shenandoah Valley filled my childhood with diverse nature, inspiring a lifelong interest in animals, plants, and all things environmental. Drop me in the woods with a sketchbook and watercolors and I'll be happy! 

Currently, I am honing my skills at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts with a major in Communication Arts and a minor in Creative Writing. My membership in The Honors College is testimony to the passion I have for my chosen degrees.

I’m a Children’s Book Writer/Illustrator and Studio Artist. I look forward to all opportunities where I can use my skills to create meaningful stories in my work.

The door is always open for commissions!
