Based in United Kingdom
Emma Cownie has been a professional artist since 2013. Her work mainly focuses on the natural world, on the coast and woodlands of the Gower Peninsula, South Wales. She uses vibrant but naturalistic colour to bring attention to the extraordinary beauty of both landscapes and everyday scenes.
Emma achieves a very strong visual impact, derived from bold blocks of colours and an expressive palette that is widely used in modern art and pop art.
Emma recently moved to Donegal, a genuine wilderness on the West coast of Europe, where she lives part-time. This epic landscape has provided new inspiration for her work. The Irish skies are vast and dramatic, and the landscape has a rugged, stony beauty which she conveys in her work.
