Emma describes her paintings as a celebration of her love of colour, texture and form. She has tackles them with gusto, creating the first few images unsatisfactorily and then almost destroying them to allow her to push them past the point of being something safe onto something much more exciting.
They are textured, overworked and rubbed and scratched back. Sometimes nothing of the starting image remains visible. Emma never knows what the final image is going to look like until it appears!
Emma listens to music while she paints, the titles for her works are single words taken from the songs that have influenced her whilst in her studio.
