Wood painting and art work
9th - 12th November 2023
Emma Jane is a creative artist.
Since studying art at Falmouth in Cornwall in 1987 and going on to complete a BA (Hons) degree in ceramics and fine art at Bath School of Art and Design in 1991, Emma Jane has gained a wealth of experience.
She ran her own ceramics studio in Dorset; taught art in both secondary and primary schools and now lectures in fine art at Bournemouth & Poole College. Emma Jane has worked as a freelance artist for mural and display areas as well as for set and costume design. Emma Jane’s work is inspired by the coast and countryside. The beautiful wood she sources determines what and how she creates individual pieces.
Each item is lovingly handmade and created using reclaimed wood and paints that other people have thrown away.
Emma intends to reflect and encourage an understanding of how vulnerable our world is and that we should cherish and respect our place within it. Using eco-friendly materials is a very important part of Emma’s process, nothing goes to waste. Everything that has been forgotten or destined for the tip she will try to make use of, reclaim, recycle, and re-love.
She showcases being smart with resources, reducing waste, and finding creative and sustainable solutions that bring beauty to our everyday lives and surroundings.
