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, where 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.
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 it's 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.
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
