Emma studied in the glass studio at Sheridan College in the Crafts & Design program where she graduated in 2008 with high honours. During her first year out of school, while she was a teaching assistant in the glass program, Emma was accepted into the prestigious exhibition Unity and Diversity held at the Cheongju International Craft Biennale. She continued to exhibit and refined her craft skills while developing a body of production jewellery and mixed media sculpture.
Emma decided to further her education and attended NSCAD University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree studying in the jewellery department. Since returning to Ontario, Emma has continued to create jewellery and build her practice. She has exhibited her work both locally and internationally and can be found at many local craft shows.
