Emma studied fine art and graphic design, at Chester University. It was here that she was given free reign to truly experiment and find her own style. It was during the second year of her degree that disaster struck; a special person was taken away from her in a sudden and fatal car accident. Her whole world was torn apart and she was completely lost and in searching for reasons answers and solace, she turned to the only thing which she felt could not be taken way from her, her painting.
The inspiration and desire to paint from the soul evolved. She found herself painting endlessly, as a release in an ever expressive and often frantic manner, every painting reflecting her quest to find inner peace. Her inspirations are drawn from the reflection of self experience and emotive senses. Emmas work is an evolving journey with each painting representing feelings and states of being.
All of her paintings are usually sourced from digital photographs, taken by Emma. The shots are either taken spontaneously, exposing raw emotion or are either thought out compositions taken on a time setting. She usually enhances the images digitally on the computer and experiments with contrast and colour, to give her an idea of light and composition. She prefers to work on a slightly textural surface, to give the painting more interest, which she creates simply by making expressive markings with acrylic paint with her hands.
