Emma Green is an oil painter based in Woodbridge, Suffolk. From her studio by the river Deben, her semi abstract work explores the rural/coastal landscape where she lives, its remoteness, wildness and the fleeting evocative changes in light and atmosphere.
Emma studied Art & Design at Ipswich Art School followed by a Fine Art Degree in Hull. She returned to Suffolk in 2001. Her work can be found at Thompson's Galleries, Aldeburgh & London, The Flint Gallery, Blakeney, North Norfolk & The Gallery, Snape Maltings, Suffolk. She has also exhibited at The Alde Valley Spring Festival where she was awarded the Fidelity Cranbrook prize for painting.
In April 2012, the BBC's Countryfile, filmed Emma painting outside at Snape Maltings with presenter Ellie Harris as part of an episode on The Suffolk Coast. In 2013, one of her larger landscapes appeared in British Vogue under 'Vogue's Masterpiece'. Emma has recently been chosen to create a large painting for the new premises of Suffolk Coastal District Council, due to be unveiled April 2018
Emma about her latest paintings:
"This new collection of work for spring continues to draw upon the changing light and atmosphere of the river Deben by my studio here in Suffolk. Every hour, every day, the clouds, sunlight, rain or mist alters the landscape below, the trees along the shoreline, the mudflats and the surface of the water at high tide. I work in semi abstract, intuitive way, exploring always the material qualities of the oil paint, adding texture inspired by the plants along the tow path, the flocks of wader birds that fly up or patterns and debris from old boats left in the mud."
