Emma is a self-taught artist who is heavily influenced by both physical and societal landscapes. She was born and raised in Lynchburg, Va, and later attended the University of Virginia where she majored in Media Studies. After college, her love for the arts and background in media studies inspired her to begin creating her own pieces. Her work serves as a comment on the way she sees the world around her. Emma is constantly inspired and surrounded by color, texture, and design. She currently lives in Richmond, Va.
Her latest collection focuses on the movement and fluidity of water within our current culture. Abstract bodies capture the underlying currents and movements impacting our environment. She sees water as the most beautiful natural element - one that is constantly taken advantage of in a mass-consumerism society. Loose marks represent the delicate nature of this intrinsically gracious element amongst our chaotic culture.
