My name is Emma Rodriguez aka MOONCRAB. I'm from Bristol, England. I went to University a few years ago and graduated from Drawing and Print Making, I really enjoyed using digital means to make work and made a lot of landscape based work, but my tutors weren't really into the collage work I was doing, so I found myself making work they wanted instead of what I wanted. Now that I have the freedom to make what I like, I've carried on where I left off with my collage work. I make it as a means of escape where I create worlds and a universe that help take people to another place.
I'm inspired by my own ups and downs, because that's when I want to escape the most, that's when I want to create something that helps me get away, but I'm also inspired by things I see and dream of and surround myself by. It is a massive achievement for myself to know that my work helps and inspires other people, I have had people message me saying that my work has helped them get through tough times and has healed them in a certain way, and that to me is more important than anything and the reason why I create my work.

I want to thank everyone who has supported my work in anyway and who has provided me with such kind words. It gives me reason to want to carry on making what I make.
