Emma is an artist and illustrator - she paints in mixed media, her bold abstracts are multi layered with hidden depths. She illustrates the everyday, delightfully, in watercolour and ink.

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 from her clients in the UK and abroad.

Emma also began painting in earnest in 2012 and after the sell-out success of her first solo show ATLANTIC she has not looked back. Her inspiration comes from her connection to the sea, having sailed across the Atlantic and many occasions both sailing and enjoying the calm turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

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, 60 artists, over 300 works. This has raised over £30k for the charity.

Emma is also currently writing and illustrating a book on sex education with more in the pipeline.
