My name is Emma, welcome to my gallery & blog!
You can find me here, constantly faffing, fingers covered in paint, shutter snapping and drinking coffee.
Welcome to the place I share my stories and pictures, write lots of lists and muse about my photography, painting and fabric design.
Roam free and stay as long as like, I’ll pop the kettle on!
I have a passion for photography and shoot with a very old fuji fine pix S3 pro DSLR, I love to team it with a vintage nikon 50mm lens. Taught by my father, a wet film photographer specialising in architecture, he is still my best and worst critic!
My grandfather taught me to paint when I was a little girl, and I have very fond memories of us going out together loaded with paint and paper, off to find somewhere beautiful to paint. He is my inspiration and the voice inside my head telling me anything is possible! He was a truly amazing man who could turn his hands to anything.
I am passionate about painting and design, and find nothing more relaxing than standing in a pile of lino cuttings working on a print ready to use on linens that I later turn into soft furnishings. I have also had a couple of my watercolours printed onto fabric which is available to order.
You can find my work available to buy over on my Etsy store The Vintage Good Life.
I am also a proud member of my local art network- Artist Network Bedfordshire
