Emma Kidd is an Australian currently working for herself, and living in Lille, France. Her last "creative" job, in Sydney, was for Whirlwind (Print), the highlight being the promotional stock samples for Whirlwind Design initially for the Semi-Permanent Design Conference. Was a graduate in photography and print making 12 years ago, traveled (Italy/France/England), worked, exhibited and lived overseas, spending way too much money in the process.
