Hello - I'm Emma & I'm an artist specialising in escaping landscapes and seascapes. My work is fuelled by earl grey tea & biscuits, & you'll find me surrounded by (mostly alive) plants in my London studio.
I want my art to make people smile. Little elements of paintings escape out of a painted box, or over onto the mount of the frame - a cloud drifting in the breeze, a wave crashing out over the boundary, or trees that you have to peer over. I want to take traditional subjects & give them a quirky twist, so following the idea of thinking outside the box, I 'Paint Outside the Box'.
Being by the sea makes me feel calm and energised at the same time. It has a way of making me breathe a little deeper, and I paint the sea to bring that feeling a bit closer to home. I often make the waves escape out of their box towards you to give you the sense that you're sharing a space - you're on the beach, on the boat, or in the water bobbing along too.
I love mixing the old & new together, so I often use pre-loved, second-hand or vintage frames to give them a new lease of life.
I re-use packaging as much as I can too, so you may notice a slightly wonky piece of bubble wrap, or a box with different branding with your orders. I'd love it if you could hang onto the packaging & use it again too to reduce waste - you'll find a (recycled and recyclable) sticker on your box, please tick one of the boxes and pass it on when needed!
I have original artwork available, & I release regular giclee print collections too. If you would like to design you own custom painting, please get in touch so we can chat about ideas & I can give you a no-obligation quote.
You can find my most up-to-date work & news on my instagram feed.
Thank you so much for visiting my website!
