Emma grew up in a small, lakeside town in central New York State riding, living, sleeping and breathing horses.
From day one, Emma has been affiliated with the colorful equestrian world. Her passion for horses led her to compete in several of the top competitions in the United States throughout her riding and training career.
It wasn't until the final year of college when she took her first Figure Sculpture class. Her first sculpture was a self-portrait, her second a life-sized horse rearing out of the ground. The rest was history. That horse sculpture now sits among the trees at the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park in Cazenovia, New York.
Emma moved to the Netherlands in 2013 to further her Dressage equestrian training for a year. She then moved to Amsterdam in 2014.
Since moving to the city known for its artistic heritage, Emma has made equine sculptures for the World Equestrian Games to raise money for The Brooke Charity, attended The Dutch Masters - Indoor Brabant in 's-Hertogenbosch where she displayed her sculptures in the VIP entrance, and collaborated with French based equestrian media hub Stud For Life. She has designed sculptures for clients worldwide including Olympians Patrik Kittel & Lyndal Oatley. She has been featured in several International magazines including Netherlands based 'Bit' magazine and U.S.A. based 'Horse & Style' and the well known 'The World of Interiors'.
Now, still completely horse crazy, Emma continues to live within the cozy canals and eclectic cultures of Amsterdam where she works in her atelier designing sophisticated equestrian ceramic sculpture.
