BA (Hons) Modelmaking graduates held their London Summer Show, New Blades, earlier this month where Emily showcased the remarkable mask and a sculptured baby monkey with much praise from her tutors and peers. Emily is thrilled with the admiration and publicity her creations are gaining and is excited about the opportunities she has since been presented with, including landing a dream job at Warner Bros Studios.
