‘Something In-Between’ concentrates on landscapes and explores light, shade and colour, with work that has being influenced by stories, nostalgia and memories.
Commenting on the exhibition Emma said;
“I’ve always loved to be connected to creativity & nature and I’m a great collector of bits & bobs found on my travels – at home with the kids there’s always a creative project on the table.”
“I love working with children & the challenge of harnessing their creativity to produce large murals.”
“ This is a complete contrast to working on my own, being immersed in the dialogue between paint and canvas.”
Emma’s arresting works are all about creating a positive environment. Her work has featured in the Ferens Open Exhibition, and permanent murals are installed at ERT Theatre Beverley and numerous schools across the region.
