Emma graduated with a degree in painting from Brighton University in 1992 and more recently with distinction from the MFA in contemporary art at the University of Edinburgh in 2014. She is currently undertaking a PhD at Chelsea School of Art in London. She is Programme Leader for painting and drawing at the Open College of the Arts at the University of the Creative Arts.
