Emily is an emerging, Australian artist, with a formal background in architecture, whose practice as a painter is defined by loose brush strokes in a fast layering of paint to capture and celebrate the ‘aliveness’ of a moment in time. She predominantly uses acrylics to paint vibrant floral scenes and still-life pieces.
Usually, her pieces start from studies or are inspired by sightings of florals and foliage which are then composed together like kaleidoscopic gardens of the mind. Emily seeks to strike a balance between earthy and energetic tones to achieve a sense of movement in her subject matter. A consideration of proportion, balance and scale is drawn from her design background, yet is applied to create the illusion of spontaneity for the viewers eye.
The catalyst for her early pieces came about from living and creating art in her van whilst travelling around Australia for 6 months in 2019/2020. Whilst living very intimately and minimally in her natural surroundings, her art evolved into a full time practice.
