About The Illustrator

Emma Bramma Smith has been described as a “spiritual surrealist”. Both Emma and her artwork are wonderful fusions of her own Celtic traditions and her love of Tibetan Buddhism and Eastern cultures, combined with reverence for the beauty and healing power of nature. Her delicate, whimsical paintings and children’s illustrations are inspired by faith, philosophy and unconditional love.

As an artist, Emma has exhibited her work in the Toronto Out Door Art Exhibition, The Royal Bank of Canada’s Gold Branch and several Oakville and Burlington art festivals, as well as galleries in the United Kingdom, Ontario and Australia. Her works are in private collections across Canada, in New York, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Australia. The illustrations, character sketches and costume designs for The Legwarmers® are what Emma feels to be some of her best work to date.

Emma’s illustrations can be found in books by authors Shannon Smith and Cj Martin. In October of 2007, Emma’s painting “Universal Heart” was given as an offering to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. A limited number of prints made of this painting have also been sold with a portion of the proceeds donated to projects for the Tibetan people.
