I can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas! Just to say thank you SO much for all your support and encouragement throughout 2015. It’s been a year of colour, exhibitions, and excitement with lots of paintings and prints headed to loving new homes. I’m packing up my paints again for the festive season, and exchanging them no doubt for mulled wine and mince pies… I have my first exhibition lined up for February in Coventry and a group show in London. I can’t wait to see what magical excitement the rest of 2016 brings. Merry Christmas all 🎄☺ Emily x
My lovely assistant is looking very pleased with himself after helping me with a busy day of framing ready for my solo exhibition on Tuesday 10th November. I’ve chosen white frames for all of my colourful pieces, and I have to say I’m very pleased with how they all look now they are framed, bubble wrapped and ready to go!
I love the sky. It’s like a beautiful painting that the artist is always working on, forever changing in different levels of light and shade. I will never tire of painting it or the endless inspiration it brings.

I’ve just entered this painting into the Guardian’s latest art assignment. For the assignment, critic Jonathan Jones has invited artists to create their own self-referential work of art about art. This theme could be interpreted in any way. This is how I chose to interpret it: “I think the primary goal of art is to connect with others, tell a story, and convey emotion. Artists often make themselves vulnerable by sharing what is in their hearts with those around them. They do so with the hope that others may gain a positive experience from an insight into their vulnerability. For my contribution, I wanted to include one of my paintings that has a powerful emotional significance for me. In this painting ‘Enchanted Tree’, I wanted to convey the happiness and energy this beautiful part of the Warwickshire countryside gives me by using an array of vivid colours and expressive brush strokes. It’s so important to have somewhere we can go that makes us feel peaceful, present, and alive. I think we all have one of those …
I’m currently working on a new collection of colourful paintings inspired by amazing smeared sky photography Matt Malloy. If you have not seen these incredible and unusual photographs yet I highly recommend taking a look! As soon as I saw them I knew I had to use them as reference for a vibrant new selection of work. There are plenty of eye catching new paintings on my easels at the moment that I can’t wait to share with you ☺ Watch this space!
It may be small, cluttered and bursting at the seams with paintings ready for my solo exhibition in November, but it’s my favourite place in the world 🙂 This is a glimpse of my little studio in Warwickshire.
I like to think there’s method in the madness of my disorganised paint pallete. In reality there probably isn’t. I always begin a new paint pallete with the best intentions, and arrange the colours beautifully like a rainbow. Twenty minutes into a painting and I’m so absorbed I don’t even notice that my paint pallete now looks like a unicorn has sneezed on it. Still, as long as I subconsciously know where I’ve squeezed the new blobs of colour that’s all that matters right?
