All Emma’s work is connected, People know her for her unique style of painting.
Strong colours, imagery and the way that they amalgamate are consistent in all her work, past and present. Elements of trees, water, space, sky, geometry and the microcosm of nature weren’t intentional, they just appeared in the paintings as if there was a higher power at work. Her inspiration comes from actually doing the work not to mention the magic bits and the colour combinations and the way it all works together in creative harmony.
As she progresses and changes, her work changes, but it always seems to know where it’s going.
