Hi! I'm Emma. 

I am a communications specialist and writer.

I write sporadically at my personal blog about books, renovating and kids.

I am a part-time arts journalist at ArtsHub, where I write about creative careers, audience development and books.

I'm one half of the creative parenting podcast The New Normal, a fortnightly chat about the ins and outs of running a business while being a parent.

I'm also the Head of Content at Creative Women's Circle, an organisation which champions, empowers and connects creative women.

I spent several years co-running a furniture design business with my husband called GRATTON. Together, we have renovated four houses in six years: an art deco home in Northcote, a hideous fixer-upper in Coburg and a rundown dump in Brunswick. We are currently working on our dream home: Yarra Yarraaka the Arnold House, a 1963 Robin Boyd modernist marvel in my hometown of Warrandyte.

We also build people: Archer was born in 2012 and Jethro was born in 2014. They are flippin' awesome.

My favourite biscuit is a Kingston and my favourite word is bubble.
