Emily’s semi abstracted figures are often placed within scenes of nature. Her paintings are an exploration into colour and form. She uses combinations of layered block colours to form her figures, often sculptural like. Having moved to and lived in different countries, including Zambia, Spain, New Zealand and UK her works often elicit a distinct sense of place and environment in which her subjects dwell. Emily’s work exhibits connectiveness and sensitive appreciation of places she knows well, and frequently returns to in her work.
Emily currently lives in Brighton in the UK. Her work has been exhibited internationally with shows in cities including London, Lusaka, Dubai, New York, Prague and Valladolid.
