Emma Scheltema


Emma Scheltema was born and raised in Auckland- where she has had an obsession with ‘making things’ from a young age.

After studying Biology at university, she decided to combine her lifelong interest in creating art with her passion for science, resulting in illustrative work with a theme of natural history and conservation.

She enjoys creating fun illustrations for children, especially ones that explore nature and the amazing things that there are to learn about our environment and wildlife. She also creates carefully rendered technical illustrations for scientific publications.
