Emma is a costume designer, costume maker and wardrobe supervisor from the UK. She is currently working towards a Master of Fine Arts degree in Costume Design at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Between studying, Emma pursues her career both sides of the Atlantic. Over Christmas, Emma worked on The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall in London and She Loves Me at the University of Connecticut. She will soon be working on Merry Wives of Windsor at Shakespeare & Company, MA.
This summer Emma will be in South Africa at the National Arts Festival and in Johannesburg conducting research for her graduate thesis. This continues her efforts to learn more about non-western theatre; an interest which was sparked while spending seven weeks travelling around India researching costumes for performance. This trip included four weeks at Kerala Kalamandalam, the prestigious performing arts university in Kerala, as the foundation for her undergraduate thesis whilst at the University of Cambridge.
