Emma Westwater describes herself as a design geek with a passion for paper and printing. Her father was a typesetter and printer, so she has always been at home around lettering and ink.
Emma grew up in East Lothian before moving to Edinburgh to study art. She developed an interest in Graphic Design and started Source Design in 2002.
In 2011, Emma discovered the art of papercutting. By combining colour, illustration and a love for hoarding paper samples, it has allowed her to develop a new style, celebrating the beauty of her surroundings.
Emma lives and works in Dunbar.
