Emna is the daughter of Houcine Kahouaji (1959-2017) a leading Tunisian poet and playwright and grew up surrounded by rhythms of verses and other prose of her father and the creative environment in their native city of Kairouan. A career in art was a natural choice.

Much of Emna’s work is inspired by her father’s poetry and is visual conversation with word and thoughts and symbols as a bridge between the two artistic disciplines. ?In 2019, her held her first solo exhibition "AZAL" (Eternity) at the Galerie AIRE LIBRE in El Teatro in Tunis.
