Artist's description:

This is a well known street in Swansea. It has this brightly lit shop called Crundles which glows a multi-coloured hue onto the cold grey pavement and street.
It is so enticing and almost sucks passing people into the alluring warmth of the shop. I loved the contrast with the cold, functional light of the launderette right beside and the warm but hard bricks of the building.
The passing man in his red jacket adds movement as well as colour to this feast of urban colour.

"Emma's paintings paintings are lively and capture the fleeting moments of day and night in the Swansea streets. A very strong visual impact is derived from bold blocks of colours and an expressive palette that is widely used in modern art and pop art. The cinematic compositions and dramatic use of light and dark in her artworks, particularly in those night scenes where I observe some tranquility and alienation in a busy city, almost draw a subtle connection to the pieces of Edward Hopper.

Her depiction of pedestrians and streets of Swansea in rain creates an enigmatic atmosphere which tempts the viewers for more.
I particularly like the figurative works which I think capture the everyday nuances of normal people going about their daily life"
