Emma Westwater describes herself as a design geek with a passion for paper and printing. Her father was a typesetter and printer, so 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 with a friend, offering a professional, affordable design service to the arts and voluntary sector.
In 2012 Emma discovered the art of papercutting. By combining typography, illustration and a love for paper samples, it has allowed her to develop a new style. Recently she has invested in a laser-cutter, which has opened up a whole new world of possibilities...!
Emma lives and works in Dunbar, Scotland.
