Emma followed working in London for several textile print studios with 4 years designing textiles and embroidery for a fashion house in Paris, regularly travelling to India for inspiration and to develop the print collection. Emma delicately cuts images, especially trees, from a medium like felt or paper and pins them minutely to their chosen background, raised ethereally from the surface, forming beautiful shadows and layers. ‘’Colour, texture and light all inspire, delight and inform me. I look for the journey of my materials particularly paper- its source, it’s evolution to a finished piece and its eventual destination. It’s a silent language usually revealing itself beyond completion. I like to feel fragility and a quiet change between colour and texture. I want light to filter and cast shadows over each work gently forming new life, movement and dimension”.
