Meet Emma

Emma Boote is inspired by the environments she encounters - both at home in the UK, and whilst travelling the world.

 

Living near the sea on the UK’s south coast, Emma’s muse is an ever-present feature of her life and she visits the beaches and coast path regularly to soak in the colour, forms and atmosphere of the unpredictable ocean.

 

Through her intricate observations (made using a range of materials including acrylic and ink), she produces energetic, small-scale studies which capture the kinetic power of the waves, rolling tides and the ever-changing nature of her subject. Sketchbooks, photographs and drawings inform each composition and Emma uses a methodical approach to really get to the heart of each painting, working in series to delve deeper into each form.

 

Her current collection of small paintings celebrate the movement of the sea and the sculptural elements of waves. Working from her studio, she combines the evocative curved ellipse of a breaking wave with an intuitive use of materials, textures and heightened colours to create a vibrant snap-shot of the natural world.

 

Preservation of the environment is a huge part of Emma’s life, and the hope is that her work will serve to remind the viewer to protect our amazing planet and look after the ocean - all our lives depend upon it.
