After studying fashion textiles at Brighton, Emma designed fabrics for 12 years.
She left work to bring up her children and has recently returned to art, this time using screen prints to produce landscapes instead of patterns.
With her camera and sketch book Emma records the familiar scenes around her. She attempts to capture fleeting moments of change: when winter offers a brief dusting of snow; when clouds move swiftly over fields; when evening light casts shadows through the woods; when the sun sets, and the sky is glorious, when the landscape is transformed.
Using photos as reference, and combining various printing methods, Emma hopes to recreate the images she has seen. The mono printing method, which she uses, brings a painterly quality to her prints and some unexpected results, and unlike most screen prints, each one is unique.
