Emma Ashby: Fluidity in Landscape (Online Artist Demo)
March 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Emma Ashby is a NH-based painter. She grew up on the East Coast of England, UK, where her deep affection for coastal landscapes was cultivated. Emma studied textiles at the Royal College of Art in London, where she received an MA. Then, having worked for several years in the British fashion industry, she moved to the United States where she was introduced to the ancient medium of encaustic. It quickly became her passion. Today Emma is a full-time artist and encaustic educator. Early work drew on her textile background, incorporating fabric and pattern to create abstract images of flowers and ponds.
In recent years her work has become more representational, and she is one of the few artists, working with encaustic, who is known for landscape painting. What makes her work especially unique is her use of clay. “I wanted to incorporate clay into the layers of wax so that some of the subject matter would actually become an organic part of what I was creating”.
