In an effort to create originals depicting ladies who could be any woman, Emily creates her ‘Fancy Ladies’ by cutting pieces of paper from models in magazines such as Elle, Vanity Fair, Essence, and Sports Illustrated. Below are process pictures from some of her first Fancy Ladies.
In 2017 Emily began her Princesses of Today Series, depicting women from various caretaker, and other under-valued roles. So far in the series she has created a Direct Support Worker, a Protester, a Gardener, a Hospice Nurse, a Teacher and has started her Nurse original. Below are photos of a few pieces in this collection.
