Emily Powell is a dynamic and expressive painter. Her work is filled with energy, from vast skies of broad brushstrokes to lively line work sketching out the land below. Living in Devon, the natural world is fundamental to her practice and Emily regularly heads out to paint and sketch en plein-air. Repeated trips and thorough preparation in her studio beforehand afford her the ability to capture moments in time that she can share. Marking down on canvas a passing breeze, the warmth of sunlight on the back of her neck or the fleeting movement of clouds, Emily invites the viewer to become a part of her world.
Emily has already collaborated with prestigious institutions including the British Museum, National Galleries of Scotland, Museum of Modern Art (New York), Gallery of Modern Art (Glasgow) and L. Cornellisen & Sons on a range of commercial projects.
