Emma is a watercolour artist, up until very recently based in Sydney’s inner west. With her move back to Melbourne (where she is adding new parent to her skill set) we were the lucky gallery that took possession of her wonderful body of watercolour artwork. We are excited to be able to share them with you!
The artworks are listed as they are shown on the walls of the gallery, starting from the left wall as you enter.
MORE ABOUT THE WORK
This is how Emma describes her work:
‘I enjoy using my paintbrush to capture moments of wonder that brighten my day. This might be a family of colourful beachtowels drying on a fence, the way the mid-day sun catches a storefront, or the dappled light falling between the branches of a tree onto a group of friends having lunch at a cafe.
My work captures my delight in such moments, whether in my local neighbourhood in Sydney’s inner west, travelling around regional New South Wales or on holiday overseas.
I take photographs to capture the light and shade, colour, symmetry, or movement of the world around me and then extend my enjoyment of my moment of wonder by painting it.‘
Emma has a bachelor in Visual Arts from Monash University in Melbourne. More recently she studied under two incredible watercolour artists at ArtEst art school: Carla Hananiah and Tanya Baily.
