Hello, my name is Emma, welcome to my blog.

A little about me.
I trained as an interior designer then found my passion in colour and texture. I now paint contemporary art in acrylic, oils and watercolour and I create tactile ceramics by hand at a slow and considered pace. I learned the basics of watercolours from my grandfather but all other areas of my work I am self taught. I love the freedom to explore creatively and often paint contemporary landscapes in subtle abstract forms. I took up pottery late in life and still attend evening classes locally, I also have a little studio in my garden where I produce most of my work. I'm inspired by the colours and textures of nature so both my paintings and ceramics have strong botanical elements to them. I love to use flowers and seed heads in my ceramic designs, I press these into slabs of clay then I hand build it into useable forms. You can find my original paintings and ceramics in my online store.

I have two daughters that bring me absolute joy every day and a very supportive husband 
I love my roses, earl grey tea, photography and pottering in my garden.
I hope you enjoy clicking around my blog.
