Emma studied illustration at the University of the West of England and the Royal College of Art. She discovered a love for printmaking and her work is mostly created using various methods of relief printing. Her work inherits qualities that stem from a variety of interests including vintage textiles, mid-century commercial art, poster design and typography. Decorative design plays an increasingly important part of her work, and she very often converts ideas for illustrations into repeat patterns. Emma currently works from home in Hertfordshire – a stone’s throw from the Grand Union Canal.
