Emma is an Edinburgh based artist, specialising in drawing and painting with a studio at Patriothall in Stockbridge. She studied at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2005 with a Fine Art degree. She is inspired by both her travels abroad, and by her surrounding environments at home in Scotland. She is drawn to both urban and natural environments and aims to create an emotional response in energetic, atmospheric works. Emma is interested in the complexities of nature, the soothing and healing properties of nature and in exploring its meditative effect. She aims to explore the boundaries between abstraction and representation and to challenge the viewers perception of traditional landscape.
