Emma’s atmospheric prints are inspired by the East Anglian landscape. Fishing boats drawn up on the beach, a sea mist, glimpsed figures on the shoreline, the east wind and ancient oak trees introduce a sense of nostalgia and memory revisited. The prints are created using a limited palette and complex etching and relief techniques. Influences include the work of the early British landscape artists as well as the etchers and engravers who translated their work to print.
Emma studied printmaking at the Cambridge School of Art and specialised in etching for her MA. She works from her studio on a farm near Bury St Edmunds.
