Gemma Correll - Illustrator

About the Illustrator

Gemma Correll lives in San Fransisco but was born in Suffolk in 1984. She went to school, where she spent most of her time drawing, cutting out and sticking and making her own comics, and wearing ‘My Little Pony’ rollerskates.

Twenty-four years later, she's still drawing, making  collages and producing comics but, sadly, the rollerskates no longer fit. Gemma graduated from the Norwich school of Art and Design in 2006 with a BA (hons) degree in Graphic Design, specialising in Illustration. She now works as a freelance illustrator.
