Emma Candy


Emma was always making things. A true creative.

She was equally comfortable with drawings on paper, with moulding clay and with film and digital media. As a school girl she constructed her final design project installation in steel. Her birthday cards to her family were creative works in themselves.

Her drawings are full of life and movement. Her handwritten texts are instantly recognisable for their strong style. She wrote long and memorable letters. Most of all she was a visual artist with a keen sense of form and colour.

In the last year of her life she regained touch with the art and craft of design work in her pottery and life classes. She struggled to reach a quality in her work no matter what it was and always found the effort both rewarding and a stimulus to do better.
