Emma Jane's Remember When ... figurines and her Cool Kids collection are a joy to behold and a joy to collect. “Look deep into a child’s eyes and you’ll find everything you’ll ever need in life; pure love, honest sadness, simple joy, and most importantly, an irrepressible hope for and belief in the future,” says Emma Jane.

Emma Jane Watkins started sculpting as a child when she opened an art school in the basement of her parents home. While her friends played hopscotch, Emma Jane baked delicately formed animals and people in the family oven. By the time she was in high school, Watkins was already receiving portrait commissions and her career as one of America’s premier sculptors was well under way.

Emma Jane Watkins’ work continues to touch on the themes shared in the hearts of children of every age. Her newest collection, “Love Letters from the Heart...TM,” captures the love and innocence of children everywhere.

"Mama, did you make all those corn cakes just for me and my Baby Doll?" Mama laughed, "Yes, Baby. Just for you...and your daddy, and your two sisters, and your four brothers." Then we ate all those sweet, sweet cakes. Remember when?
