About The Artist
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.
