Emily Fowke: Artist & Illustrator

 

I am keen on working from Nature, on exploring the range of colours to be seen in every subject and in creating a sense of space. I will be working more predominantly from life over the next year and exploring portraiture and still-life as well as landscapes and animal studies.
