Kiln Formed Glass

Jewellery

Emma Boxall Gray

Enthused by my portfolio I am inspired by the free flowing energy my drawings contain. I am fascinated by the ongoing construction work of surrounding building sites and how they encapsulate an industrial quality. Experimenting with mono-printing, collaging and spray painting has allowed me to capture their qualities and translate their lines into my own work.

Her work tells of her relation to the surrounding land, sea and skies. She paints with almost unseeing spontaneity, to provide a depth of layers that over time gradually evolve until reaching a point of resolution.
