For ‘Uccelli’, the presence of nature around me was my inspiration. In particular the presence of birds and the trees. Of course, the soundtrack of the woods comes in to the equation and using the names of the birds heard in the woods, an instrument with a soothing presence is used to strike the rhythm of their names.
Emma has always been inspired by nature visually and inspired by sounds, either natural or man-made. Often as a child she would draw birds from books about nature or being mad about horses would draw them too but always sought to bring the flat image to life.
Emma has an art degree from Central Saint Martins. Before that she trained as an actress for two years and attained a degree in English with Philosophy.
