Emer has moved steadily over the last two years into crafts and the visual arts. In the crafts field, she started into papier-mache, working in strips of paper rather than in pulp mixtures. Objects can be built up with as much as 100 layers of paper before getting a selected finish and design added in on top.

She uses much the same technique in her artwork, layering on oils and acrylics and often adding on wood, metal, wire, wool or any other material that takes her fancy. Without formal training, she lays it on thin, rather than thick, about her artistic abilities and is happy to debunk pretence about the creative process. "I said once in a radio interview that I did'nt really know what I was doing, friends who are artists weren't impressed," Emer admits, though her work shows an unerring eye and hand.
