Emma Carlisle is a Devon based artist and illustrator. Her distinctive paintings start on location throughout Devon and Cornwall where she delights in capturing the sense of place of the landscape or seascape drawing en plein air in her sketchbook.
The subject matter allows Emma to revel in colour and expressive marks in pencil, watercolour, gouache and acrylic. A burst of abstract, dynamic marks often become the land on which a small cottage or tree sits. Each painting has a strong connection to the south west of England without being tied to a specific location allowing the viewer to form their own narrative within the landscapes.
