About Emily

Emily Martin holds a BFA in photography, drawing, and English literature from University of Georgia.

As a child, she spent all her time drawing, daydreaming, and dressing up rabbit dolls. As she grew older, Martin began to illustrate her daydreams. In 2005, she founded a cottage industry called The Black Apple, which sells all types of art.

Her studio is filled with old children’s books, wind-up toys, and stacks of fabric. Her work is inspired by fairy tales, carnivals, vintage children’s clothing, films, and memoirs.

The Black Apple’s Paper Doll Primer, which she wrote and illustrated, was published by Potter Craft in 2010. More recently, her illustrated novel for children titled Oddfellow’s Orphanage was published by Random House.
