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.
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.

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

I thought I would share with you my 'Creative Space'. This is where I create all my artwork in mixed media and encaustic wax.
I am lucky to have a designated art room now, as for years I have just worked on a small table in the corner of a bedroom. Its great to be able to store all my equipment properly and to leave out the artwork that I am working on for another day. My mood board displays favourite photos and encaustic wax mark making techniques for future reference.
