Emma Rose

Emma is a contemporary artist specialising in semi-abstract and impressionistic painting with an emphasis on colour and texture

She has developed an original style melding Indian and French inks with acrylic paints, producing vibrant and arresting work.


Emma Rose grew up between the West Country and London, loving equally the countryside, the sea and the city. Her colourful family instilled a love of art, theatre, literature, photography, dance, nature, gardening and a wander-lust.

After being educated at Sherborne in Dorset, she settled in London.

A vibrant 15-year London career in the arts followed -
in theatre, film and photography. Working with well known directors, producers, actors and theatrical impresarios, she was as happy backstage and on film sets as being ‘front of house’.

During this creative time she also trained in tap, modern, jazz and choreography at The Dance Centre, Covent Garden, whilst also studying painting, photography and sculpture at the renowned Chelsea Studios.

In tandem, there has also been a lifetime of artistic tuition with her step-father, Godfrey Cake FRSA the painter, photographer and sculptor.

After moving from London to Somerset, Emma settled in a beautiful village just outside Bath in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. At Bath College she studied abstract theory/colour/technique which fuelled her creative passion. For five years she had a happy time running her own gallery on Walcot Street, the artisan quarter of Bath, and now works from The Art Studio in Wellow. Here she creates, exhibits and enjoys visits from customers, or discussing commissions.

From an early age, she travelled extensively - these vivid experiences often inspired and revealed in her work. Combined with her keen interest in the processes of growth in nature and landscape evolution, helps her paint from her internal reservoir of remembered senses.

With an obsession for colour, form, texture and patina, her eye finds beauty in the most unlikely places which makes her work atmospheric and evocative.

Her work pulsates with imagination, exotic colours, textures and dynamic brushwork and mark making. The skies and landforms reflect her interest in the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi...the process and beauty of ageing which creates irregularity and imperfection.

She now regularly exhibits in Bath, the West Country and London.

Also, she regularly works with Interior Designers and Property Developers (do please get in touch) - examples can be seen on her commissions page.

Commissions have winged their way to the USA, Canada, France, Ibiza, Greece and Australia, along with numerous UK clients.
