Emma Williams

Emma Williams artist

Emma was born in Chipping Sodbury. She began her artistic career studying textile design at Huddersfield University. Emma’s degree put her in good stead as it was underpinned by craftsmanship, developing not only her skills for making things but also incorporating creative development and thinking.

Emma emerged from Huddersfield with an understanding of both traditional and future materials and applied creativity toward cloth, craft design, artefacts and textile art. Once qualified, Emma worked as a freelance textile designer and artist from 1994 to 1998, gaining experience as a freelancer and defining her work and style. This eventually led to focusing solely upon her artistic practice.

In 1997, Emma made the switch to full-time artist. Her wealth of experience designing and producing printed textiles became strongly evident in her painting style. Her signature compositions contained a varied and bold palette, applied to create still lifes and coastal landscapes in flattened perspective.

Emma’s inspiration has originated, and still comes from the beautiful Cornish coast. Emma began incorporating glimpses of interiors in the foreground of her landscapes, creating scenes for the viewer to step into.
