Helena Emmans BA hons, Design

I grew up in Edinburgh and after gaining a B.A (Hons) in Design (specialising in textiles) from Glasgow School of Art I moved to Skye where I have lived for 11 years. My background in textiles is evident in my paintings and silver jewellery.

I use a subtle palette and paint entirely outside, hoping to capture the mecurial weather, light and moods of the Isle of Skye. I like to portray the feeling of Skye through an intuitive response to the landscape and its colours.

Being within the landscape, feeling the elements while seeing my surroundings change, produces, I hope, the sense of the particular moment in my paintings. My style of painting is to capture the scene in a single session with no reworking.
