Her characteristic witty surrealist style celebrates the female form, very often in movement – dance or performance. – SaloArte.
Emma has worked throughout London and Europe, as a VJ (video projection artist). From the early analogue days, transitioning through to the digital age. She went by her given name of Miss Plunkett and had way too much fun mixing her videos live at all the big night clubs in London, as well at festivals, concerts, art events and for theatre. She taught video at Four Corners, London and she worked as a senior video technician at the London Film-Makers Co-op (The Lux). More recently she has taken her animation and film making skills into more formal work arenas – films for websites and films for conferences. The most noteworthy of which being for Acompalia, Siemens FS, VSO, Morley College, and The Miscarriage Association – her animation was runner up in the UK 2017 charity film awards.
Emma’s work is very personal and great, elaborated with great mastery and feeling. – Rafael Vílchez, IDEAL
