Emma’s practice focuses on painting and drawing. She is interested in how nature and the built environment co-exist or impose themselves upon each other, and the relationships that occur between these liminal spaces. Much of her work explores forgotten or overlooked pockets of land in the suburban areas of her home town of Milton Keynes, exploring how the planting and landscaping in and around the city has weathered and matured.
Alongside her practice she delivers workshops and art classes for galleries and other arts organisations as well as providing art courses linked to the national curriculum for schools.
Emma has exhibited in group and solo shows regionally and nationwide and in 2013 was awarded the Milton Keynes Community Foundation Arts Bursary to support her practice.
