RECOMMENDATIONS

Details of the Recommendation: "Ramsgate Arts commissioned Emily to provide a creative response to local residents' concerns about litter and dirt in the streets of the town. We were staging three flash mob style dance events in the town centre and required a physical installation that could support and develop the central message of taking pride in one's environment. Emily more than fulfilled the brief and created an imaginative and interactive piece that was truly accessible and fun. Later in 2010 we built a whole event around Emily's concept of Disco Ducks and Emily was an inspirational lead in our community workshops that led up to the main event. Working with Emily is a real pleasure. She is organised, professional, sensitive to the specific requirements of any brief and is able to deliver. Her range of work and skills is impressive and she is a truly talented artist."

Details of the Recommendation: “Emily worked with IOTA and Art Monkeys as a freelance artist, whilst I was employed part time by IOTA. Emily took part in an artists' forum, community and celebratory art projects and workshops with children, often working as part of a team. She was always a valuable person to have on art projects as she is dexterous and calm, working efficiently, whilst also getting along well with other artists, employers and project participants. I worked with only Emily on a project with disabled children, whereby she was patient and sensitive to the needs of the group, whilst helping create large scale paintings. She is a reliable and able creative, who can work well alone, as well as with a wide variety of people.”
