Emma Tweedie is an established artist who works between Northern Ireland and London. Since completing her Foundation year at The University of Ulster, she went on to graduate from Northumbria University with a degree in Fashion Design and Marketing. Since then Emma has enjoyed successful careers spanning the fashion, textiles and interiors sectors.
Painting professionally for the last six years, Emma has focused on developing her techniques and painting process. Her contemporary and impressionistic 'layer paintings' are highly textured and colourful yet still feel soft to look at. Each painting slowly draws the viewer in, where they discover a myriad of mark making.
Emma looks to her homeland for inspiration and particularly the land, sea and sky. Colour values are carefully considered, and the gentle application of colour creates an emotional impact, delicately balanced so that they feel harmonious and 'magical'.
