Emily Bolam published her first children's book upon graduating from art school. She has been creating board books and picture books ever since.
Bolam was born and raised in the English countryside. She studied Illustrations at Brighton College of Art and is the illustrator of many popular books for children, including Murphy Meets the Treadmill, Louie's Goose, Clara Ann Cookie, and I Swapped My Dog. She is also a big fan of swapping, and hopes to make at least one good swap this year. She makes her home in England.
