Emma is an award winning watercolour artist with a background in Painting Restoration. She studied at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London gaining a PGDip (Cons) in the Conservation of Easel Paintings, and worked at galleries such as the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery and the National Museum of Wales.
Emma has now returned full time to her first love of painting and continues to draw upon her knowledge of artist's materials and techniques gained through her experience in art restoration. She works exclusively with Japanese specialist watercolours, often including hand gilded areas in real gold leaf.
All of Emma's original paintings have been carefully made into limited edition giclee prints and are available in stock and bespoke sizes, and are all printed on high quality watercolour paper.
Emma applies the same attention to detail to her range of greetings cards, which are taken directly from her original watercolours and have the most minimal digital adjustment before being printed on watercolour card stock to maintain that just-painted feel.
Emma grew up by the coast in Gower, Wales and the influence of the sea still flows throughout her work. She now lives in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire and enjoys the inspiration she gains from living close to the river Thames.
Emma's original watercolours, prints and greetings cards can be found at galleries and boutiques throughout the UK.
