Art Margin and Candida International were created by the artist and health freedom activist, Emma Holister
She is self-taught apart from a brief waft through Central St. Martins, London (92-93) where she attended a one year post-graduate course in painting.
She is English, speaks French and Spanish fluently and Italian, German and Japanese very badly but with great gusto. She has travelled fairly widely and prefers to live in most places other than England.
She has generally exhibited in most of the places she has lived, including London, Brighton and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Her artwork is mostly about things that obsess, worry or annoy her. She has a very broad variety of styles and frequently uses cartoon imagery because she feels it’s the best way to talk about unsettling things without getting on people's nerves.
