Emma Reyes was born in 1919 in Bogota. When she was about 6 or 7 years old, her mother abandoned her. Reyes and her sister were sent to a convent. [2] While at the convent, Reyes was not allowed to socialize with the outside world.

At age 19, Reyes was able to leave the convent. She got married and had a child. Her child was later killed during a home invasion. Reyes soon fled to Paris to begin here her life of painting.[2] In 1943 she received a scholarship to study in Paris.[3]

Reyes died on July 12, 2003 at age 84.
Much of Reyes' artwork draws on her life and the obstacles that she faced living in poverty. Despite the cruelty Reyes experienced in her childhood, she still tried to send positive messages through her works by making colorful images associated with animals and plants.
Reyes never received an education and was considered "illiterate." Nevertheless, she wrote letters and put them together as a book. She was mainly known for her writing rather than her paintings.[4]

Many of Reyes' paintings were unnamed. Instead, they were distinguished by what they represented. Most of her early works was a representation of the life she had left behind.

Before publishing her book The Book of Emma Reyes: A Memoir, Reyes didn't want any changes in her grammar.

The book consist of 23 letters as the only format she was capable of writing. The dates of the letters start from 1969- 1997.[3] It was known that Reyes had a difficult time organizing her thoughts when it came to writing. Luckily, her solution was writing letters. The first letter of the book opens up with the most obvious, her childhood from there leading to her life.[3]
