About The Artist

Emma was born in 1975 in Reading, Berkshire – a bustling town between the River Thames and River Kennet. Having always shown a great passion for art, Emma was encouraged to pursue this direction by her art tutor and family from an early age. Following her Foundation Course in Art/Design in 1995, she then furthered her studies in Fine Art Painting at Brighton University in 1998, where she gained a degree in the subject. Her end of year show proved a huge success and many of her paintings were sold.

Emma met her now husband Andrew, on the final day of her degree course in Brighton and has remained in Sussex with her two children ever since – finally settling in Worthing, West Sussex.

Emma’s paintings have, more recently, become more about the paint, texture and colour – she is an artist who enjoys exploring the medium and seeing where it takes her. The outcome of the piece shows its history of progress, revealing hidden layers below and new narratives. The result – ‘visual poems’ that intrigue the imagination and a rich layering of sumptuous colours. Concerned with a more ‘organic’ approach, the outcome grows with the physical act of painting.

Quite often, Emma will take a shape as inspiration, usually shapes we see every day in nature – leaves, flowers, stems, birds, butterflies and use this as a starting point, adding to it her imagination, so that a sense of balance and harmony can be found in the piece – resulting in a painting with a heightened depiction of what the subject really is.
