Film Director Danny Boyle said of Emma's award-winning exhibition project (IN)VISIBLE (IN)SIGHTS, featuring her striking portraits of adults with autism, : "This channel of expression from the autistic world is a simple, brilliant idea of Emma’s. The chance to capture life in one unchanging, vibrant moment is a bridge between two worlds often further apart than planets."

Her most recent project is Face Forward : a public art exhibition in London that utlises building site hoardings in the Church Street area of Westminster which is currently undergoing regeneration. It features Emma's large-scale, B&W portraits of local people who will be affected by the changes taking place in their neighbourhood.
