Emma is a conceptual artist, photographer and writer whose work investigates consciousness and the nature of reality. It is her ambition to access the subconscious, and to tune-in to the higher Self. Collage and poetry play a central role in this pursuit, and she frequently weaves text and images together.
Emma’s aesthetic deconstructs conventional perceptions of ‘real life’ with the intention of unveiling a deeper reality. Her mixed-media compositions are the result of experimental processes that aim to unlock the metaphysical truths that underlie physical creation, and to discover who we are at the most essential level of existence.
Emma was born in England where she graduated with an MFA (distinction) in photography under the guidance of internationally renowned photographers Anna Fox and Karen Knorr at The University For The Creative Arts. In England Emma worked as a professional photographer, and has exhibited her personal projects in prominent London locations such as The Menier and The Strand Galleries.
Since re-locating to Italy, Emma has won the Spontanea Street Folios Prize for her street photography. Designed and taught a creativity course for PHD students at the European Institute in Florence. Mentored photography students and curated pop-up exhibitions of their work. And is a contributing author at The Florentine magazine.
Emma’s current focus is on writing a psychological thriller about the hyper-dimensional manipulation of everyday life. The artworks presented in her current exhibit, Love Is A Superpower, are the preliminary sketches for this book.
