HELLO FRIENDS and welcome to the blog of The Humble Sparrow!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Emma Fourie and I am a budding illustrator/artist who is self taught and slowly building up my portfolio. 
I previously ran an inspirational blog called But, Honestly but have decided to focus purely on what I adore, what drives me, what I dream about, what I long to do day in and day out - to draw.
So feel free to follow my journey, my progress and my inspirations that I shall be posting about. I'd love to create a resourceful place where creative people can come and have new ideas and initiatives sparked by what they see so please feel free to let me know of any amazing artists you are inspired by.




  1. Hello Emma, I just discovered your beautiful Blog and I really adore it. Your work is inspiring and very good. I´m a self taught artist by myself and I really love to find other great artists like you. I would love to follow your blog, but I can´t add you on Bloglovin. I don´t know why it doesn´t work, but you are now in my favorites and I will visit your blog more often. ;)

  2. Thank you so much Lena :) so glad to bring some inspiration! Have added The Humble Sparrow on Bloglovin for you so enjoy! x
