"Milan, Paris, London, Hong Kong, New Dehli, New York... Sometimes it takes a few turns around the globe, to find where you truly belong."
Discovering who you truly are and what makes your heart beat that little bit faster, is a place where we all wish to find ourselves sooner rather than later and I think that
Emma Jane Rushworth has managed to achieve just that!
As a member of a very creative family myself, stepping into Emma Jane`s picturesquely converted cottage which she shares with her husband and two young sons, instantly makes me feel right at home. Her busy household is made up of a lovely mixture of young and old style and one can feel that it is a home which is truly lived in. Everywhere you look there are bits and pieces of inspiration, as if scattered just by coincidence; a beautiful book here, a sweet coffee cup there, rustic chicken wire covering the cupboard windows and details which make me desperately long for having more time on my hands to be creative and as Emma Jane makes me a delicious cup of liquorice tea, I know this will be a great interview.
Imagination, creativity and individuality are three trusted companions
Emma Jane has brought along with her on her travels through the world and her career and the pieces have finally fallen into place like a puzzle, as it often does.
As luck would have it, she soon found placement as designer for a large Irish fashion company based in Greystones, County Wicklow and from all the stunning and intriguing locations she had visited, this was the place on earth which proved itself to be where she feels that she truly belongs.
Enjoying the busy life of again traveling here, there and everywhere and, as she says herself, she must have put in enough stitches in her career to cover entire Ireland, a few years later and with now a young son waiting for her at home, she had to begin listening to her inner self as it became increasingly hard to leave this little bundle behind. Going on long trips, taking her very far away from him and her husband was beginning to break her heart and yet again, a decision had to be made.
In 2014, Emma Jane was unemployed for the first time in a very long time, and she had to consider what she was going to do and how she was going to do it, to support her young family.
