“Emily burst onto the gallery scene in 2021. Through her unique palette, sense of colour and bold mark-making, these expressive paintings offer us a glimpse into her immersive and fully-realised imaginative world – the mark of a true visionary.
“The celebration of joyful creatures and vivid colour in Emily's recent work reflects the achievements and accolades of an astoundingly successful year.
"As an early-career woman artist this level of confidence and risk-taking positions her as an inspiring figure to artists and collectors alike. Her paintings, should you wish to take one home, act as talismans to delight the owner with this joy and confidence."
– Alicia Livingstone, November 2021
Emily Powell is a contemporary colourist painter whose work bursts with joie de vivre. Colour and creativity fill her paintings which span diverse themes, rampaging across the boundaries between observation and imagination. Powell's subjects surround her in life and include characterful animals, uplifting flowers, fishermen observed from her seaside window and the coastal landscapes of Devon. The latest direction Powell has taken is to develop complex abstracts using her exquisite understanding of colour. These genres combine to form a running monologue on what it's like to be a woman living in contemporary society.
Emily went to Norwich School of Art for her formal training with a sabbatical at the Ecole Régionale des Beaux-Arts de Rouen (2008-2011).
