In 2018 she was nominated for an Emmy for her collaboration with poet and activist DJ Savarese, in the film Deej. Her installation work includes Emergence, an immersive artwork and collaboration with composer Jim Perkins for the Turner Contemporary Margate.
Her distinctive style of continuous motion in oil-paint combines psychological insight with an intuitive method of working the paint: each frame is painted by hand. Em’s early film Laid Down, shot from the point of view of a newborn baby, eventually became her personal creative manifesto: her focus is on exploring subjectivity and lived-experience.
Em is a graduate of the Royal College of Art.
