Hi! My name is Emma Penfold born & bred in Cape Town, South Africa & I have a passion for anything creative. Having worked in the advertising industry for 21 years, I knew it was time to go out on my own & pursue my passion for fine art photography & interior design. My love for interiors started at a very young age; forever redecorating my bedroom at home and designing my own furniture which my dad then made for me! I studied Graphic Design which included learning the art of photography. At home, I set up my own darkroom & spent countless hours developing film & printing black & white images. My first job was as one of the first digital photographers in the South Africa, shooting product. My passion has helped me build a couple of houses and renovate a few apartments. My love for taking a blank canvas and filling it with carefully selected interior pieces, will delight anyone who wants to see their home filled with magic!
