Emma Zukovic, an artist and filmmaker, was born in Lymington, England, and is now based in the west of Ireland. The artist's mother is of Irish nationality and her father is from Macedonia. Since receiving a BA in Fine Art Printmaking and Contemporary Practice in Limerick School of Art and Design, Zukovic has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally including Russia, Italy and Canada and has received awards for her efforts.
