Emily is an emerging, self-taught artist, based in inner-city Brisbane, with a formal background in architecture. Her practice as a painter is defined by loose brush strokes in a fast layering of paint to build areas of detail. She predominantly uses acrylics to paint vibrant floral scenes and still-life arrangements.
Broadly, her work aims to capture and celebrate the ‘aliveness’ of a moment in time: to encourage (both herself, as the artist) and the viewer to be completely grounded in the present. A consideration of proportion, curation, balance and scale is drawn from her design background, yet is applied to create the illusion of spontaneity for the viewer’s eye.
