It’s infectious. And it’s got the power to melt even the most hardened of cynics into believing that, hey, all is well with the world. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and the day is mine – all because Emma Jane is smiling. Yep, this woman can make you forget it’s raining buckets outside.
And that’s mainly because Emma Jane is away with the fairies. Those beautiful, sparkling, graceful, majestic fairies.
Coming here from Paris, with love, Ms Rushworth naturally started out in fashion, but that move to Greystones soon brought out something deeper, something more substantial, and today, Emma Jane is one of the country’s most sought-after sculptors. Specialising in copper-wire creations, Emma Jane’s work has featured on RTE and in the national media, as it graces some of the finer gardens Ireland has to offer. Including her own – worth checking out, if you happen to be passing the Rushworth HQ at the junction of Bellevue Road and Kindlestown Lower.
With her latest work now installed at Greystones’ Theatre Lane, Emma’s fame continues to rise. Not that celebrity is important to Ms Rushworth, as she sets about creating a little artist colony here in Greystones (Yvonne Leon is her immediate neighbour), doing it all whilst surrounded by her loving hubby, Paul, and their ridiculously happy little boys, Oscar and Charlie.
Maybe that’s why Emma Jane Rushworth is smiling all the time. She’s found the perfect balance of work, art and play right here in Greystones.
