Hi, I'm Emma and I'm lucky enough to live on a smallholding in the Norfolk countryside. I'm passionate about birds, animals, and nature, and I'm lucky enough to share my life with sheep, goats, chickens, a horse, and also my rescue dog Riley, who's always at my side.

I graduated with a BSc but I've always loved creating. I started painting after picking up a book by Jo Sonja Jansen in a craft shop, and have never looked back. My special interest is trying to capture the unique character of birds and animals. I spend a long time observing both my own animals, and also the wildlife around me. I always say drawing things helps me appreciate them twice as much.

I'm also interested in the process of making art. I love learning new techniques and trying to extend my skills. I do everything from drawing and printmaking, to felt and fibre crafts when I get time.

When I'm not spending time with my animals or creating, my other passion is cycling. I've done several ultra distance rides and enjoy taking part in e-sports. 

I have an interest in mental wellbeing having volunteered for two mental health charities supporting people in crisis. I think nature has a special role in wellbeing, and hope to spread my love of it through the art I produce.
