Meet the artist & maker

Emma’s inspiration comes from the beauty of nature and the ordinary miracles that she sees in the ever-changing landscape, close to home. She aims to create a sense of place using lines, texture and colour to explore our relationship to these surroundings with scale and depth. Her paintings have been shown at the Mercer Gallery in Harrogate.

Emma is a Macmillan Speech-Language Therapist at St James’s Hospital, in Leeds.

This is the first year that Emma James has exhibited at York Open Studios
