Emma graduated from Leicester Polytechnic with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art. She has spent most of my art career working as a freelance illustrator and surface pattern designer creating designs for products including greetings cards, wall art, homeware, stationery and more. Her designs have been licensed by several publishers and manufacturers worldwide.
Her recent paintings are a fusion of fine art, illustration and surface design with an emphasis on texture, pattern and colour. Emma is excited by exquisite colour combinations and she favours muted palettes with a flash of something vibrant over primary colour.
Inspired by Illustration and Surface Design techniques, Emma's paintings use no boundaries of scale or perspective. Her inspiration often comes from a single colour, shape or pattern which she transposes into a landscape or seascape either real or imagined, adding to the overall feel of layering, detail and texture.
