Way out of Lockdown

March 19, 2021
Hello everyone,

I think as a society, a community as individual's with or without family's it has been good news to see the map out of lockdown this April 2021. It has been hard for so many reasons and hardships including loss of loved ones, lost health, lost jobs, homes and the loss of seeing art. Art in person, in the flesh being able to see brush strokes created 100's of years ago, visual art, installations and cinema. It has been a tough year for the creative industries but also the loss of for children viewing art and feeling all the emotions and experiences one does through visiting galleries and art across Scotland and the UK.

Wishing good health and visual pleasures in 2021, Emma

Boys in paintings....

March 21, 2019

Today, I was just thinking how I've always met boyfriends and within the first month envisage them as a paintings which from then on never deviates! Currently, I always visualise my husband as nude behind a large tree with his form hidden with only one eye peeking round the corner. He is in a vibrant green flourishing forest with amazing cobalt blue large flowers trying to 
immerse him, he has a cheeky look in the one eye that I can see. I have not completed this work but one day I will. I rem...

A wonderful day spent in Glasgow with my son after submitting my thesis corrections and sending it to the printers to be bound! Next step writing up papers with my supervisors. My research 'The Artivism Intervention' is a patient pathway which aims to use art as a tool to challenge and conscientise society regarding stigmatising attitudes towards disabilities and mental health. Oh and yes a visit to Hermes was a must!!!

New Work

June 6, 2015

I have just completed a few new pieces for my joint exhibition with fellow artist Kate Downie in September this year. I am so looking forward to exhibiting in The Crush Hall in the arts building at Pathfoot, Stirling University, Scotland. Both Kate and myself have been individually funded to exhibit and explore China on many

Also, now I am 3 weeks into this mad anti pain detail of physio, pharmacist, psychologist, and GP. I feel I'm in a parallel universe where chronic pain pati...

Chanel tweed sequin trainers, Fashion, I'm in love….

August 7, 2014

It's been a week of pain clinic, fashion, time off studying and amazing fashion! When I look round the pain clinic, I am the only one in my 30's by about 30-40 years. I wonder to myself if other peeps cope with pain via amazing fashion fantasies and day dreaming about Chanel's next trainers collection. I've halved my opiate intake over last 2 years but the pain is now very tough. Somehow I think if I'm dressed in head to toe fab fashion the pain in my spine will dissipate, I'm still working o...
