Emma Farrarons is an illustrator and graphic designer based in South London. Born on the tropical island of Cebu in the Philippines, Emma grew up in Paris. She studied illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art and l'École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Having completed a textile and printmaking course at Capellagården in Sweden, Emma has developed a particular love for the art of pattern repeat and fabric print.
Her debut and bestselling book, The Mindfulness Colouring Book, has sold over a million copies and is available in 20 languages. For her new book in the series, Art of Mindfulness, Emma drew inspiration from nature. This included trips to Kew Gardens in London with her baby son, where she would capture interesting patterns and shapes with quick observational drawings while he slept. Also, the land, city and seascapes of Sandinavia on her many trips there.
