HEY ! My name is Emilia Apreda and I’m a Multimedia Graphic Designer and a wannabe “jack of all trades”.

I was born and raised in Sunderland, a canny city in the North East of England, by my Italian dad (hence the surname) and an Irish/English mother. I grew up surrounded by my mother’s portrait artwork and knew I wanted to be just like her... creative! I taught myself to draw (with some help from my mother) and became a portrait artist, drawing celebrities and doing commissions in my free time.

In order to make a living I decided to go back to school... so I did. I studied a BA(Hons) Graphic Design at the University of Sunderland in 2019 and graduated with a First! Since then I have been working on building my design portfolio, one project at a time, doing what I love everyday.

I am currently freelancing in Graphic Design and I am available for artwork commissions also. I hope to speak to you soon.
