Hello, my name is Emma (emelizabeth), I am an artist and animal rights activist living in South Wales UK. My work often has themes of flora and fauna, a fascination with which was instilled in me from a young age.
I would keep jam jars to make ‘petal perfumes,’ and bring home bugs to try and keep them as pets, forever trying to bring a little bit of nature home with me.
As well as the poor bugs I kidnapped (no longer a hobby of mine), we always had family pets: fish, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats and dogs, all of whom taught me that animals are individuals with personalities. As a child I adored them because I thought of them as my friends. As an adult I am much the same, but that love extends to all creatures. I believe we should walk gently on this earth and my work is a reflection of that belief.
Have a look around and please don't hesitate to get in touch to ask about commissions or just to say hi!
Thanks for stopping by!
