About her work
Emma’s work is all about brushwork, tone and colour. She greatly enjoys using the play of light on subject matter to bring her paintings to life. She works rapidly, completing pieces in one sitting, capturing the immediacy of the emotions felt and conveying them though expressive brushwork and colour.
Emma works in oils, either on box canvas, canvas paper or board. Her pieces are normally completed using only one or two brushes, sometimes a finer one for small details. Emma’s style is intuitive and impressionistic.
Painting is always a relaxing and spontaneous event that Emma enjoys. She hopes that this is conveyed through her pieces allowing the viewer to feel the pleasure with which each piece was painted, through her vibrant colours and playful brushstrokes.
The Red Signature
On any piece of Emma’s work you will find the signature is written in red paint. At the beginning of Emma’s painting career, she signed all her paintings with the only acrylic colour she had to hand, cadmium red. The red signature has become part and parcel of the stamp on Emma’s work and you will see it on all works she goes on to produce.
Emma is the owner of The Tailoress which provides another way to invest her creativity.
