Emily Morgan

Emily takes inspiration from her surroundings, predominantly the landscape and motifs found in nature, from fields, forests, rivers, ponds, beaches, hills and everything in between whether she is on a train, a walk, gazing through a window or remembering a place once visited...

She aims to capture not only the physical properties of her subject through considered form and colour, but to also convey something of the atmosphere of a place, be it the sheer joy of a plant, the haunting light or the workings of a field – looking at both the minutiae and grandness of the world around her. She is constantly fascinated by the subtle patterns created within the natural and man-made world, reflecting ideas of time, growth, change and contemplation, combined with interesting surface qualities and mark-making.
