Emma was born in Hereford to a Welsh mother and English father and has lived in several different English and Welsh towns and cities during her life. She studied for a degree and doctorate in Medieval History at Cardiff University in the 1980s and 1990s. Emma has always been creative, whether it was drawing and sketching as a teenager, drawing with oil pastels and screen print-making in her 20s and or focusing on photography and oil painting in her adult life. She has lived and worked in Swansea since 1998. Things took a dramatic changed for Emma in February 2012. She was involved in a car accident which led to her developing PTSD. It took a long time to recover. During the course of that year, Emma saw two therapists who used EMDR therapy. This was a turning point. Late August 2012, she picked up her paintbrush and started painting and painting; every day. She hasn't stopped since. Emma has been a professional artist since 2013, full-time since 2016. She is an internationally best-selling artist. Her work is held in private and public collections across five continents. Her work focuses on light and colour; whether it is a landscape, a streetscape, in her poignant people portraits or amusing animal paintings. Emma delights in painting ordinary people in their everyday lives.
