Emma Candy


Started University at Loughborough but there was too little design in Design and Technology. The transfer to Leicester Polytechnic was a good move and she began to rediscover her love of design.

She filled her life with friends, performed in a rock band and was close to home for occasional comforts.

After graduation in 1990 and a year of job searching locally, she decided to moved to Glasgow. Once there she began to forge a new life. Out of this time came an MSc at Strathclyde in November 1992 and then her first 'real' job.

On to Edinburgh, a new job at the University and for the first time she bought her own flat in Easter Road.

Scotland was home for seven memorable years before she moved south to Manchester and then to London.
