A Scottish-born artist, Emma emigrated to New Zealand in 2006 after studying at the Glasgow School of Art. Her art is largely focused on portraiture and figurative painting, but also draws inspiration from the landscapes of Central Otago, incorporating their textures and colours into her work. Emma's paintings explore emotion, with recent works focusing on mark making and the manipulation of form to evoke a strong sense of feminine expression.
You can currently find her most days working from her studio in Queenstown.
Alongside her paintings she also runs her business Studio Peers where she sells her Illustrations as Art Prints and homewares.  She also accepts commissions for Illustration projects - you can view her portfolio here.
