Emma started painting a few years ago, enjoying the freedom of expressing her creativity in a different way, learning new techniques and practices. Inspired by nature, she is drawn to landscapes, water and interesting skies. She is fascinated by birds and enjoys experimenting with patterns, textures and layers of colour to add detail, drama and impact to her work.
When painting Emma works mainly with acrylics, plus a few little extra ingredients if she needs a specific effect or finish. With printing she uses water based inks with lino, and acrylic or watercolour for monoprinting. She often uses hand-cut stencils, masks and stamps to achieve a lot of the textures found in her work.
