After studying at the St Martin’s School of Art, Emmy worked as a freelance designer and illustrator. When outgrowing their home, the family moved to Kent where she and her husband set up a business designing and publishing children’s products and greetings cards.
The sale of the company gave her the opportunity to travel widely to the southern hemisphere where the bright light and scenery inspired her to put her creative energy into painting. Frequent visits to southern France and Italy have provided Emmy with endless topics for her brightly coloured paintings in oil. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in England and France.
