She’s an interesting person, and is inspired by all things Gothic-Victoriana. She is now represented by Lazarides in London, which is a refreshing change to their roster, and has a solo show with them in october.
She paints in a very classically informed chiaroscuro style and sets up all of her own reference photo-shoots and commissions the models herself.
Here’s a few images of her work from her Concilium Plebis (council of the ordinary people) series.
Also, check out this great mini documentary on vimeo.
It’s interesting to see how she builds up the layers of paint to achieve the skin tones and the contrast between the light and dark.
I’d be interested to hear what others think of her work.
Opening night was a fantastic night indeed, Emma looked fabulous, the work as always outstanding, Trinity Warriors were captivating and I'm so glad I was there, thank you Emma.... am proud to call you a friend xx I wish you all the success in the world
