Emma was born in England in 1961. She graduated in 1984 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Printmaking from West Surrey College of Art and Design. Since then she has worked as a full-time artist and exhibited throughout the UK.
Her paintings have been internationally reproduced as greetings cards, posters, limited edition etchings and fabric designs. Emma’s training as a printmaker is evident in her use of blocks of flat colour and in the way she scratches through surfaces to reveal pre-laid colour underneath.
Her influences come from travelling to India, Cornish holidays and the chaos of cats and children wandering onto wet paint!
Artists who have inspired Emma include Mary Fedden, Milton Avery and Daphne McClure.
