bespoke illustrations

It is the moments and characters and memories of our lives that fill it with richness. 

That’s what I want to capture. More than just the lines and shapes and colours on a piece of paper. The small moments, those everyday happenings that are the extraordinary in the ordinary; to recall the good times, and the funny times and sometimes the sad times too. And treasure those moments that are gone in the blink of an eye but can last forever on the page.

"Emily’s delightful, whimsical drawing of our beloved home is perfect for us to send to our hundreds of visitors as a happy memory of fun times shared and a happy place to be.

She has captured wonderfully the magic of the Christmas season, and of course included our 2 cats, as a special request.  

Thank you so very much, we can’t wait to get the image to our printers in France.


"So delighted with the personalised card that Emily designed for my husband's birthday.

She took such care to include details that I'd mentioned and really got to the heart of his character.

This isn't something to be taken down after the birthday, it's something to keep, to display, to smile at.

Getting it right matters to Emily and I couldn't recommend her work more highly."


"I wanted to get my cousin a personal and meaningful gift for her 40th birthday.

I was delighted when I discovered Thomkat Illustrations family portraits.

I sent Emily some photos of each family member, and as they don't have any pets I asked if she could add a pet dinosaur (the current family favourite!).

The family portrait and and pet dinosaur were perfect! It truly was one of those gifts where the pleasure was in the giving.

I would highly recommend Thomkat Illustrations family portraits for presents to others...or to yourself!
