“Being outside is good for the soul” and that’s where Emma is her most content, getting inspiration for her artwork.

Emma spent many happy years living on a farm in the Borders of Scotland before going to school near Windermere in the Lake District, and then to the New Forest. Being surrounded by such beautiful countryside triggered her passion for rural landscapes and animals, particularly British wildlife and the elusive Brown hare from a very early age.

In her artwork she captures many of nature’s beautiful colours and characteristics. She works in many different mediums including charcoal, acrylics, pencil and oils.

She regularly takes on commissions including commercial and private murals, book illustrations, animal and house portraits, river map designs and marketing material design work.

She has also launched an eclectic range of luxurious silk scarves and prints which are available to purchase.

When she’s not painting you will find her walking her two cocker spaniels across the dramatic Bath Skyline or rowing on the River Avon spotting kingfishers! She lives in the centre of Bath with her husband and two teenage children.
