The idea of shelter and the inhabitant is at the core of much of Emily's work; how a person is shaped by the buildings they have occupied and how a person occupies their own psychological space. Her work often has a double function of being both shelter and clothing. The shelters are an expression of the layers that we surround ourselves with. Increasingly, Emily's work is worn or performed, using somewhat absurd spaces and sculptures constructed specifically to fit her body.
Emily studied for a BA (Hons) in Drawing & Painting, Edinburgh College of Art before completing a MA in Fine Art: Drawing at the University of the Arts London: Wimbledon College of Art. Emily is based at the Royal Standard in Liverpool, and has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally.
