Welcome - great to have you here!

I’m Emma – artist, designer & business owner. Welcome to my online home; a place for me to share my experiences, knowledge, highs and lows of business (& life!)


In the past 20 years I’ve worn many business hats – some of my business endeavours made money, some didn’t. My current business, Bespoke Backdrops is making a healthy turnover and profit.
