About Emily

Living in West Cornwall has shaped my work. Beach finds are tools in the process of my making. I love the fabric-like twists and folds of seaweed; the diversity in the contours of pebbles; the weathered character of flotsam I see washed up along the shore. This dichotomy of the precious and the organic – special stones encircled by sea-worn fragments of gold – characterises so much of my inspiration. At the heart of my work remains the sculpture and tapestry of my early fine art practice.

In the 1990s I became a curator – firstly at my own contemporary art gallery in Edinburgh, and then as the Director of Newlyn Art Gallery in Cornwall. I started to make experimental, sculptural jewellery in 2000, which developed into the smaller scale pieces that I make today. For as long as I can recall, I have always loved the visual arts. After studying fine art textiles at Goldsmith’s College I spent a postgraduate year at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Art in Poland.

Constant experimentation, playfulness and development of ideas, alongside a mindfulness of the relationship each piece has with the wearer, drives my creative process and output.
