Emmie is a mixed media artist whose inspiration comes from journeys, mystical stories and the bizarre sights she has encountered on her travels. These may be the crumbling beauty of Cuban buildings, the sensory kaleidoscope of India or the time echoing features of Istanbul.
If variety and contrasting scenes characterise the choice of subject matter, variety is also reflected in the materials used, with anything from lego to coffee, circuit boards to resin, stamps to spices, integrated into the layers of paint. She often uses rollers, different printing methods or a palette knife to initially build up layers in an exploratory manner and will then sometimes sandpaper it back, scratch into it and drip or pour paint onto the surface before working further on the details.
Emmie trained at Oxford Brookes (Foundation Course) and Nottingham Trent (Applied Art BA hons), and has been listed in the ‘Who's Who in Art’, published by Morven Press, 2012. Her work is represented in London and Internationally by Quantum Gallery and she shows regularly with the Jerram Gallery in Dorset and The Wiseman Gallery in Oxford.
