I grew up in Northern Italy where I formed my passion for art and illustration. Now I continue my artistic journey in Calgary, Canada where I live with my family, two brilliant sons and my beautiful white cat.
Over the years, I have worked as a graphic designer, illustrated children's books, made artworks on murals and painted dinosaurs on the streets.
I had the pleasure and the privilege working with publishers such as Piemme, De Agostini, Piccoli, Juvenilia, Edizioni E.Elle, Signum Scuola, Giunti Scuola, Gakken and with the City of Calgary Public Art.
My works are charming, whimsy and sometimes quirky.
Since I started in 2016 MATS classes with Lilla Rogers, my art is more focused on the editorial, book, apparel, home decor and gift markets for children and adults. I play with different techniques such as watercolour, acrylic, pencil crayons, ink brush, markers and gouache combined with digital. I am curious, I like cooking, traveling and taking pictures.
Thank you for stopping by!
"Emma completed several art pieces for me when I worked as the coordinator of the City of Calgary painted utility box project. Her work is fun and vibrant and she was a pleasure to work with. Emma completed the work quickly and in a very professional manner and I would not hesitate to recommend her for any project."

"Giunti Scuola is an Italian publishing house leader in primary school sector and it's always been a benchmark for Italian teachers. Emma Bresola designed the digital illustrations for three book covers of the new book series called Gus (Giunti Universale Scuola). She has been a pleasure to work with, bringing her attention to detail to every illustration, and she has done an excellent job. I can confidently recommend Emma as a solid expert in her field."
