CHURCH LANE GALLERY
Emma Wilkinson, Artist
Emma Wilkinson, born in central London but now living in Fenny Compton, comes from an artistic family. Her grandfather, Banbury-based artist David Robins, painted and exhibited all his life, and her mother is a professional photographer.
Emma’s painted ‘art clocks’ are much admired in Church Lane Gallery, as are her hand painted magnets, cards, prints and original artworks.
In her painting, Emma experiments with different media and styles, but her preference is for bold lines and colour. She also enjoys surprising the viewer with unexpected twists, as demonstrated in her painting 'Green-sleeves', a modern re-imagining of Sir Francis Dicksee’s classical portrait of Mrs Guinness, which gives the lady some very contemporary ‘sleeves’.
Between big painting projects, Emma enjoys making 'one-line doodles' - line drawings completed in one line without lifting the pen, and coloured without crossing the lines. Her #onelinedoodle365 and instructions, can be found on her Instagram and Facebook 'ArtDecadance' pages. Her work can also be found on Etsy, Amazon Handmade and Zazzle.
