Emily Winfield Martin is an American artist and author-illustrator of children’s books. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
After graduating from art school in 2005, Martin began selling her visual art through the online store Etsy, thereafter achieving notoriety in the New York Times, on CNN, and on The Martha Stewart Show as one of Etsy’s original and most enduring success stories. Eventually Martin parlayed these successes into a career in professional book publication.
Martin has written and illustrated four picture books, The Wonderful Things You Will Be, Dream Animals: A Bedtime Journey, which won the Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Award in 2013, Day Dreamers: A Journey of Imagination, and The Littlest Family’s Big Day. Her children’s novel, Oddfellow’s Orphanage, which she also wrote and illustrated, was described by Publishers Weekly as a “poignant and gently humorous debut […] set in an unusual orphanage.” She also produced a popular crafts book, The Black Apple’s Paper Doll Primer: Activities and Amusements for the Curious Paper Artist.
