My name is Emma, I am 37 and a self taught artist. I’ve lived in bonny Ayrshire all my young days. At school I found a passion for drawing but only started to paint in the last 10 years, I joined the art circle not long after, I’ve learned so much from the other artists and gained confidence with the great local exhibitions. I love the outdoors and I’m inspired by the forever changing light and colour contrasts in the sky and trees. I mostly paint in acrylics as I realised I’m too impatient for oils, but occasionally I take the notion to get them back out. I paint lots of trees (I love trees!), clouds and frankly whatever takes my fancy whenever I get my easel out.
