About

Emily is a Glasgow based visual artist, working predominantly within digital print. She graduated from Leeds Arts University in 2020, with a first class degree in Fine Art.

Emily’s work is heavily influenced by landscape, nature and colour. Recent pieces focus on the theme of ‘our perceived separation between the natural and the digital’. She investigates this comparison in connection with environmentalism vs technological development.

Her process involves digital and analogue drawing, each media informs the other. She brings together drawing, painting, collage and installation to create a tangible version of digital landscapes. These traditional artistic methods provide the preliminary means of imagining how an audience may encounter her imagery, in the form of an object or a place.

Since the pandemic, Emily has begun researching ways to simulate that encounter online, with methods like animation and virtual reality.
