In 2011 Emma showed the culmination of four years of explorations using digital print and digital mark making in an exhibition entitled Neck and Neck. Here she exhibited a collection of digital printed fabrics that could be worn around the neck. By engineering colour, gradient and graphic pattern when worn these pieces take on a sculptural form. Each design is an individual canvas created in response to the frame and three-dimensional nature of a scarf shape. Tied, looped or draped determines how the print is viewed.
This sold out show and subsequent gallery shows led her to establish N and N in 2013. It sets out to explore making and printing within the digital framework and the handmade.
To date the results can be seen in a collection of distinctive textiles and accessories. Each design blends colour and digital pattern to create sumptuous british made wares.
Her focus is on innovation and quality british workmanship .Harnessing digital print to minimise waste, reduce energy and water use. Each scarf is by design engineered to fit the pattern. When cut out there is hardly any waste.
The cloth is digitally printed by skilled practitioners of digital design and production which is then made into a limited number of wares by skilled hands that cut, sew and finish.
