Emma J. Read is a contemporary abstract sea painter based in Hampshire and now is a full-time artist, selling all over the world. She studied printed textile design at Loughborough University where she developed a strong love for bold colour and pattern which is key to her work.
Emma’s abstract paintings are a spontaneous and intuitive response to her feelings of both joy and respect towards the sea, the surf and its wild ways. Exhibiting in the south of England Emma is gaining loyal collectors who share her connection with the coast and love of bold colour. She hopes her paintings will draw you in, turn you about and have you emerging with salty hair and longing for the sea.
