I have always loved the challenge of using collage and recycled papers in art. As a student I could not afford expensive art materials so used whatever was lying around, pictures growing organically depended on what papers were available to recycle. I think of my work as painting a canvas with paper, the brighter the colours the better, I particularly love working on local Cambridge scenes.

Why Emma chooses to use repurposed materials
I hate to throw things away and love the possibilities offered by the coloured papers in magazines, which would otherwise be thrown away.
