Emma is an Adelaide-based artist working in the unique medium of body paint installation and photography. Exhibiting extensively throughout Australia since 1999, Emma’s astounding artworks have since captured the attention of collectors and art lovers worldwide.
Emma has received great acclaim for her refined body paint camouflage technique; through a combination of painting on canvas, body painting and studio-based photography, her work evokes a rich array of visual narrative and magical realism.
Best known for her Wallpaper series (2005 - 2010), in which she painstakingly camouflaged the human form by hand-painting her models into the remarkable designs of the late Florence Broadhurst, Emma’s diverse artwork collections draw inspiration from the unique Australian flora and fauna, as well as Oriental influences.
Emma’s collaboration with Grammy award winning musician Gotye resulted in the iconic music video for Somebody That I Used to Know, which saw her international profile skyrocket.
Emma’s work is held in private and corporate collections globally and she is represented by galleries in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taipei, London and New York.
