With a vibrant colour palette and gentle brushstrokes,
I utilise impressionistic techniques to depict attractive natural and urban scenes.
I’m Emily Curtis, an artist who produces work which portrays atmosphere and emotion, often inspired by moments in nature and urban life. Up close, my art is comprised of overlapping colours and brush marks, which at a distance form a complete scene.
I build up my paintings over many layers of glazing acrylic paint; this creates beautiful depth through complex workings with colour. Using gentle brushstrokes for seamless blending, my work helps to promote the feeling of capturing an instant in time on canvas, prolonging the moments that often feel too fleeting to be observed in everyday life.
