Painting started as a hobby several years ago and has developed into something of a passion. Images from nature and wildlife are favourite subjects and recently I have taken a number of commissions for portraits and am starting to show my work at local markets. I hope to find outlets for my original work which now also includes high quality prints available at more affordable prices. Several original designs have been printed as greetings cards and are proving to be very popular, so I’m enjoying spending more time in my studio, at home, in Scotland developing new ideas. I work in watercolour, oilpaint and soft pastel and love playig with natural light effects.
My name is Emily and I am an award winning thread painter – I create wildlife and portrait artworks with hand stitching. Predominantly on fabric but I also use wallpaper, plastic and handmade paper to create unique artworks. Wildlife and portrait commissions are always welcome.
