I'm Emma and I'm an essayist. Published work includes reviews, art writing, travel writing and memoir. Occasionally, I try to blend different elements from all of these. In September 2023, I was writer in residence at Marchmont House in Duns, Scottish Borders.

My writing is often led by an interest in a particular artist's practice or work of art, and I enjoy collaborating on new projects. If you're an artist, or a gallery looking for some copywriting work (or if you just want to chat!) you can contact me by email here.
