Born in Berlin, Emmy Elphick studied at Victoria Fachschule, and St. Martin’s College of Art in London, before becoming a part time Lecturer.
She later ran a publishing Design Studio creating educational products and greetings cards for the children’s Market. After the sale of the business she fulfilled her ambition to become a full-time Painter.
Emmy’s extensive travels have taken her repeatedly to the South of France, Italy, Spain, and the Far East, where the clear sunlight light led her to work in an impressionistic style. She has worked in watercolour for many years but more recently has gone on to working in oils. Her love for bright and vibrant colour is evident in her work and is her first consideration when planning a painting, may it be ‘en plein-aire’ or in her studio at home in Kent.
Emmy has exhibited in numerous solo and group events all over the South East of England and has sold her paintings extensively abroad. Medici Publications have selected many of her paintings for reproduction.
