Emily has been an artist all of her life, and was encouraged to revel and wonder in all that can be found in the natural world. Now she encourages others to play with abandonment and embrace the messiness of being lost in a world of colours and textures. Colour, light, lines, shapes and all the interactions in nature fuel Emily’s wonder and delight.
Emily took up photography at a young age, trying to capture all of that wonderment with her camera. More recently, she has been immersed in ‘building’ art with fabric, fibre, paper, clay and recycled materials, on their own and together. The recycled and found fibre has proven to be the perfect vehicle to create art that can suggest or represent scenes or simply inspire abstract creations. She allows her imagination, surroundings, favorite places, and the materials themselves to fuel her creativity and encourage simply “messing about”.
