Emma is an award winning contemporary artist based near Bath specialising in semi-abstract and impressionistic painting with an emphasis on colour and texture. Using Indian Inks and acrylics she produces vibrant and arresting work, whose style is distinctive and original. Landscape, sky, sea, nature and memory are the inspirational core - often reflecting her interest in the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi. This is the process and beauty of ageing which creates irregularity and imperfection.

Emma worked for many years in London, a career spanning theatre, film, dance and photography before leaving for the country idyll of Wellow, near Bath - old home of the Brotherhood of Ruralists, pop-art king Peter Blake and sculptor Peter Watts.

She sells original paintings, limited edition giclée prints, canvas prints and cards.

Commissions are happily accepted for private and commercial clients.

I'm much inspired by these words.... about Georgia O'[Keeffe.."Even her abstract paintings grew from her observations of nature. As historian David W. Galenson has pointed out, they represent the “progressive simplification of the shapes of real objects.” Through this process of close looking, O’Keeffe sought to communicate the essence of her surroundings: “It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis,” she said in 1922, “that we get at the real meaning of things.”

"Why Art? Because art may be for your lifetime and beyond. It may be part of the legacy you leave for your children and theirs. So have faith, strive to buy the best, and remember: long after famines and plagues, crusades and revolutions, depressions and world wars, art survives - always has, always will."
