          My name is Emma McCarthy, I have a great eye for color, composition, and I have a passion for storytelling. My work is whimsical and can bring the magic in a story to life! I excel at making compact illustrations with a lot of small stories incorporated into the design. I make art that brings magic and wonder into the lives of others. I am a multi-medium artist and have experience in everything from digital art to clay mediums and woodworking. A large amount of my digital work resembles my passion for traditional work by bringing in textures and a great pop of color.


          In early 2020 I made 2 murals in my high school and had planned a 3rd before covid had shut it down. Currently, in 2023, I am working on a mural project for RIT in the Elevator of the College of Art and Design. This project aims to showcase student work and prevent graffiti. This project has been amazing to create and I cannot wait to see what it turns into in the following years to come, and I am proud to say I founded it and will be the first to participate before graduating in May 2024!


         I grew up in rural New York near the shores of Lake Ontario and have a great passion for nature, animals and small town fun. I have always been the imaginative type and am very ambitious when it comes to my creative passions.


I'm always looking for new opportunities to create!  Send me an email and some project information:
