Emma Wells BA (HONS) Artist Statement.

I am a Norfolk artist based in the rural village of Shipdham. I work in a variety of media and specialise in the unique medium of Encaustic Wax, which I also tutor and demonstrate.
My artwork is inspired by the flora and fauna of this beautiful county and is all expertly framed by my husband Marc, from our home based framing studio and workshop, Ivy Cottage Framing. in the village of Shipdham, Norfolk.
I also love to produce pet portraits in mixed media too. I enjoy bringing your pets character to life within my artwork, using a variety of media including coloured ink, pen and pastels.

I have just finished this pet portrait 'Gift Wrapped!' This is Charlie and he has been created using a variety of media, including watercolours, pastels and coloured inks. It was great fun producing such a colourful art work and I even included his little 'cat house' in the background of this picture.

I wanted to create an encaustic wax painting this weekend but I was struggling to find a subject matter to spark my creative flow. I walked out of my back door into the garden only to find a beautiful green/blue dragonfly basking in the sun amongst my herbs! Inspired by this sighting I have created this image.

I just wanted to show you my final finished encaustic wax artworks now they have been fully framed by Marc. I decided to keep it simple with grey frames that would work within a modern or traditional home. I have used a striped effect wooden frame for 'The Angler' Kingfisher picture and a slight driftwood feel for 'Reflections' the sea life picture.

This new artwork is inspired by our local Barn Owl visitor swooping across the fields opposite our home. I decided to create it's 'home' and family in encaustic wax. I have titled this work 'Peekaboo'. Marc has framed it for me in a simple pine frame that brings out the colour of the Barn Owl feathers, as well as helps to reinforce the feel of being in the trees and close to nature.

This unique and personal retirement gift is painted in a combination of colourful inks, watercolour and pastel. I really enjoyed painting all the jewellery in the window display as I got to use all my metallic inks! A simple ' gold cushion' frame choice works well with the gold ink within the painting. The framing is once again bespoke and made by my husband Marc at www.ivycottageframing.co.uk
