Create and Grow
Hello, I’m Emma. As long as I can remember I have loved to draw, paint and make things; I simply can’t remember a time when art wasn’t a part of my life. I work in mixed media, creating colourful, experimental and unique artworks from my home in Lichfield in the UK. I fit in time for my art around caring for my two young children who are both enthusiastic artists themselves and love to get involved.
After studying Illustration at University, I worked in Arts Management for 10 years, where I was lucky to be involved with many inspiring community and arts education projects as well as experiencing some truly wonderful exhibitions and performances.
I grew up in rural Wiltshire and have a strong connection to nature and the countryside which has become a frequent theme in my art. In my spare time you will usually find me outside in my garden or allotment where I love to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables.
I am passionate about enabling people of all abilities to enjoy being creative and I run ‘Arts Jam’ free art workshops for both adults and children in partnership with Nurture a local Community Interest Company.
