Emma is a Scottish Landscape and Still Life Artist.
Emma's vibrant and distinctive mixed media paintings on gesso panels demonstrate a strong emotional connection with her subject. Her unique technique of weaving of paint, light, colour and mood onto textured surfaces result in a highly personal and often thought-provoking interpretation of special places or times. Her subject is mainly Scottish landscape and still life.
She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Contemporary Art and Painting in 1998 with a sell-out degree show. Emma has been a full-time artist ever since and her diary is filled with exhibitions and commissions from collectors worldwide.
She has received many awards over the years including House for an Art Lover Award, Sir William Gilles Award, Miller's Creativity Award and the Glasgow Art Club, to name but a few. Emma won the Alexander Graham Munro Travel Award, which took her on an extensive tour of Italy in 2000. At the age of 23 she gained the RSW diploma which she received from the Queen. A few years later she was also one of the youngest artists to receive the Paisley Art Institute diploma.
2018 is promising to be a busy year for Emma with many gallery commitments and art fairs representing her work in the UK and New York.
