Emily was born in the UK, she move to Toronto, Canada at the age of 13. She studied Fine Art, at The Toronto School of Art and Interior Design at The International Academy of Design. She has been exhibiting across Canada for 10 years now.
Her earlier works depicted the human figure and represented love and belonging. As a child she watched her mother, a ballerina, dance from the wings of the stage. "I loved the lines in the dancers bodies. The gentle but powerful movements, I wanted to capture each pose."
Gradually, she became more interested in the space surrounding the form. Her work became more structured, less about the lines in the human form and more about creating the same momentum by moulding the canvas with blocks and layers of colour and texture.
Currently you can view Emily's work on line or in person at her Gallery & Studio in Doon, Kitchener.
