Emma is a textile artist based in the heart of Hamilton. She is co-studio facilitator at RE-create outreach art studio and part time professor at Sheridan College in the Bachelor of Craft and Design program. Emma also regularly taught sewing at Needlework Hamilton where she fell in love with the Hamilton arts community. Previous to that she resided in Roskilde, Denmark for two and a half years where she volunteered with the University of Copenhagen, working with organizations helping to settle recent immigrants as well as learning the art of basket making with local artisans. She graduated from Sheridan College with a Bachelor of Craft and Design specializing in textiles.

Emma writes poetry and creates textile sculptures informed by her poetry. She speaks about grief, loss, forgiveness, peace, connection and addiction, drawing on personal experience to bring nuance and vulnerability to her work. From using sewing thread or acrylic paint to form knitted sculptures, to playing with colour and form, she focuses on staying curious and open, often finding that exciting things can happen there.
