Emma Thistleton is an artist and illustrator - she paints bold colourful abstracts and illustrates the everyday. After her degree in Graphic Design, she spent 10 years working in branding and advertising, followed by a career change and focus on family life.

It was not long before the creative in her came calling, and in 2012 Emma pursued her passion of illustration, designing cards and wall art. She regularly takes commissions for her clients in the UK and abroad.

Emma also began painting in earnest in 2012. Whilst at art college on a book illustration course, a painting course caught her attention, and she has not looked back after the sell-out success of her first solo show ATLANTIC. Her second successful solo show JOURNEY, held recently at the Gallery in Delta House Studios, really showcased her work.

Emma is also the founder and curator of the hugely successful 33 Art Sale, which raises funds for the Rural Refugee Network charity. One evening, 40 artists, over 200 works.

Emma is currently writing and illustrating a book on sex education.
