To purchase, please contact Richard at Talos Art Gallery.

Over the last 37 years, Emma has been commissioned to sculpt a great variety of subjects from racing camels in Dubai to, most recently, a much loved, but sadly deceased, ‘racing priest’ in Ireland.

“There have been many famous racehorses and interesting people over the years, all my subjects have been fascinating, and many challenging.”

“I am fascinated by all animals, but being born and bred in Ireland, horses are naturally a large part of my DNA.

Movement, or even the possibility of it, as perceived by me, is what I am to capture and bronze is my medium.”

Commissions include
  • The Hickstead Derby Trophy, featuring Eddie Macken and Boomerang
  • Life-size bronze of Sadler’s Wells for Coolmore Stud
  • Life-size bronze of Caerleon with Coolmore’s Head Stallion Man, Eamonn Phelan
