Born into a family of Cornish pirates and smugglers Emma developed an obsession with treasures & adventures early on in life. She creates painstaking artworks out of miniature hand-crafted components, often involving precious and curious materials.
Emma worked for Damien Hirst for a total of 7 years – including the installation and exhibition of his infamous For The Love of God diamond encrusted skull at it’s UK unveiling at White Cube Gallery, London. She also worked as a painter for the Chapman Brothers on their epic installation Fucking Hell.
She has been involved in group shows at London’s Institute of Contemporary Art, produced illustrations for the Sherlock Holmes museum and had artwork published in Time Out Magazine. Her work has been bought by clients and collectors all over the world, including Zoe Ball & Dawn French.
Emma studied art & illustration in London College of Printing (BA) and Camberwell College of Art (MA).
