Emma Wilkinson BA (Hons)
Emma Loves to use bold colour and line to capture the ‘vibrancy of things’, her work epitomises her awe and respect for the natural world.
Emma's new showcase, put together especially for Oxfordshire Artweeks 2023 explores a mindful way of creating art. Using vibrant hues and metallic elements achieved with alcohol inks combined with wax pastels and white acrylic to add depth and texture, Emma endeavors to 'paint how nature feels' in those awe-inspiring moments when we witness the natural world in all its magnificence! She believes that owning a piece of art can transport us to moments of calm reflection in our everyday lives.
Alongside her art, Emma is passionate about protecting natural habitats and has created a community wildflower meadow near her home, with plans to seed further meadows this year. She believes that by respecting and preserving our natural environment we can cure many of the problems of today's society. Her work is an affirmation and celebration of this belief.
Emma has enjoyed art for as long as she can remember, she comes from an artistic family, her biggest familial influences were her charismatic grandfather, Banbury-based artist David Robins who painted and exhibited all his life, and her wonderful mother, a professional photographer.
