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.
Having been an artist since she was able to hold a pencil, developing her skills in many styles and genres; Emma now works predominantly with alcohol Inks, often combined with other Media. Alcohol inks have a brilliance and luminocity which capture how we feel in those awe-inspiring moments when we truly behold the natural world in it’s glory.
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 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 who is a professional photographer.
