Emma Magenta was born in Sydney, Australia. Her drawing talent was
recognized at an early age when she was commended for "The Best
Depiction of Samson" in a school art competition. Later, and
perhaps on this merit alone, Emma attended art school for several
years. World travel, palmistry, and martial arts beckoned her from
her studies, but eventually Emma''s art called her home.
