Emma, who was born in Staithes, recently completed her BA (Hons) Fine Art at York St John university. Emma’s current collection The Wallflower is a series of botanical wire studies presented on contemporary canvasses. To create her botanical studies, she carefully manipulates wire to define the subject’s outer edge and then uses finer wire to highlight key features of the subject. By using the wire in such a way, intricate shadows are cast when light is directed towards the piece and provides grounding to her delicate work in situ. Emma’s portfolio includes detailed sculptural work using wire, clay, and driftwood.
