About Emma Sian Pritchard
There are no upcoming events
"I have always created. I have painted all my life. Painting is a like an itch, a daily requirement, an urge, excitement. Creating is compulsive. I paint constantly, almost 7 days a week and still I love it. My ideas come intuitively, like a compulsion. Predominantly I do not have references, I follow the paint and let something new come to life. I feel all humans are creators, the key is to create our own creations. "
Emma has been selling her work on a full time basis since 2003. She was born in South Wales UK and raised by a very creative family. She lived in the historic roman town of Caerleon, then for a few years on the beautiful West Wales coastal town New Quay. Her family finally settled in the beautiful 'Towy valley' in Llandeilo, West Wales. Her home life was idillic, an old farm house in the middle of beautiful countryside with freedom to play outside all day with her younger sister Laura. These early days have influenced her work immensely.
She is a passionate and prolific painter. She loves exploring the endless possibilities of harmony between shape, colour, texture and movement.
She is part trained and self taught. After her Art foundation course she began a display role in a large furniture company based in London in the exciting late 80's.
Emma paints almost everyday in her studio, an 18 century wool factory, which is also her home in south Wales, UK, about 30 minutes from Cardiff.
Born of a business, musical and creative family the door was open for her to explore her passion with paint.
At the moment she is using mainly acrylic paint, it's fast drying qualities are perfect for the highly textured layered work that she creates.
Her work is bold and bursts with colour.
You can find her work in galleries and in private and public and corporate collections both home and abroad.
"Painting is like life, it's a journey, the joyous moment to moment juiciness of the unknown. Enjoyment of the painting is my passion and once completed it is time for the next one, the journey being as important as the 'end result'
Is it bold? clear? fresh? Does it 'pop?' are questions I ask myself at the end of a painting, if the answer is yes then the painting is finished. "
She has work all over the world including America, Nepal, Israel, France, Hong Kong, The Netherlands, Singapore, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and Australia to name a few.
She has also worked considerably with corporate companies, producing original artwork for the workplace. An example of this is Motor Novo Finance, a hugely successful expanding business in Cardiff where she produced over 30 large paintings for board rooms/manager offices /reception areas.
She has prints in Dunelm stores UK
She has featured on local T.V. several times
She has had work in various magazines such as 25 beautiful homes and Cardiff Life.
Emma has worked as a professional artist since 2003 although has been selling her work since 1993.
