Emily Zieroth is a young illustrator from Ontario, Canada, who  has been drawing since early grade school - and it was mostly for fun. However, thanks to a close friend of hers, she joined oDesk, and started taking those self-taught drawing skills and putting them towards a career. She has been illustrating kids books for over 3-4 years now and has illustrated well over 25 books.

Her style consists of a bright, fun, and whimsical form that is engaging and eye catching. She continues to strive towards great illustrations that makes kids smile, along with parents and clients alike.

Although Colleen doesn't really want to share her, she is available on oDesk or by email to help make your book a stunning success!    Email Emily
