Emmi Valve (FIN b. 1984) is comic artist and illustrator from Porvoo.

In Emmi Valves’ comics, she wants to tell something about life as it is, often with the end result of almost like a dream which was once real. Personal experience has become an encompassing theme for Valve. She feels it is important to put something of yourself in the work. Sometimes it is scary to tell about yourself honestly, and Valve often thinks she won’t publish the ready comic anywhere because of it feels too personal. But after some time has passed, lucky for us, she ends up changing her mind.
