Emma has always loved to create.
From an early age she crafted taped quilts and custom cards to sell to her family of 8 and watercolored all the plants and animals of her native Texas Hill Country. Painting, specifically portraits, was always a favorite medium, but while studying at SCAD in Savannah, Georgia, Emma developed an interest in detailed line work and cartography.
Emma composes detailed maps that tell stories by giving linear structure to places we commemorate and call home. These maps chart memories --- both those made and being made --- of our travels and the stories that define out sense of place. Beyond her personal work she creates unique maps that commemorate special occasions, such as weddings, travels and other events. She works and lives in Tucson, Arizona.
