Biography / Artist statement
Emma is an artist and curator, working and living in London. She paints abstract images on canvas, board and custom-made birch wood panels. She is inspired and intrigued by the power and beauty of nature, the constant interaction of the elements and how they make her feel.
Her new work, on one of her irregular-shaped birch wood panels, has been selected for the final round of judging for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2020.
Emma trained in graphic design and spent 10 years working in branding and advertising, before starting to pursue her true passion of painting in 2012. After the sell-out success of her first solo show ATLANTIC, inspired by her sailing across the Atlantic Ocean in 1991, she has not looked back. Her second successful solo show JOURNEY was held in 2019 at the Gallery in Delta House Studios.
Emma is also the founder and curator of the hugely successful The London Art Sale, which raises funds for charities whilst supporting the participating artists. To date she has raised over £50k for the Rural Refugee Network and is now working with South London Cares on a London sale.
