Hello - I'm Emma and I'm an artist specialising in escaping landscapes and calming seascapes. My work is fuelled by earl grey tea and biscuits, and 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 and give them a quirky twist, so following the idea of thinking outside the box, I 'Paint Outside the Box'.
My favourite subject is the sea. 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 it to bring that feeling a bit closer to home. I often make 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 want my business to be as environmentally friendly as possible - I often use second-hand / vintage frames to give them a new lease of life. I love mixing old frames with new art - I think it creates a lovely eclectic feel full of character.
I save and re-use packaging for your orders 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 and use it again to reduce waste - you'll find a sticker on your box, please tick one of the boxes and pass it on when needed!
I have original artwork available, and 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 and I can give you a no-obligation quote.
You can follow me on instagram to see new work, process videos and my inspiration (relaxing sea videos and lovely beach photos), and sign up to 'Inside the Box' to receive exclusive offers and early access to upcoming collections via email.
Thank you so much for visiting my website and for all your support with my small business - it means the world!
