Emily May born 1977. Graduated from Bath Spa University in 2001 with a BA Hons in Illustration, and in
1995 a Btec Foundation Degree Art Falmouth School Of Art And Design.
Emily grew up in South West Cornwall near Penzance, being surrounded by a rich Art culture and a unique, exceptional light given off by the sun on the sea that circles almost the entire peninsula.
Her mother and grandmother were artists and her step father a picture framer, and so took early inspiration and guidance from well connected and respected artists that were customers and friends of her family.
Emily's work has been shown in London, Bath and Cornwall and now living in Swindon she also exhibits and sells her work in and around Old Town and in the Swindon museum and Art Gallery.
"Light, colour, nature and a sense of well-being all inspire my work. I'm drawn to colour in a way that lifts spirits. I paint in a very intuitive way."
