Emma Chambers

Delicate, modern day botanical paintings of ordinary plants in their landscape.

Emma Chambers is a landscape and botanical artist, whose work is recognised for its delicacy, freshness, and its unique perspective on the world.

Chambers studied Textile Design at Brighton before embarking on a career as a freelance designer. Elements of her training, such as pattern and layout still inform her work, along with influences from artists such as Elizabeth Blackadder, Joan Eardley and Kurt Jackson.

Chambers is most attracted by plants that go unnoticed; small landscapes under foot. With intense observation, she is able to untangle detail from the most complex of visual challenges. Painting from direct observation, sitting at ground level, Chambers gains a unique perspective, almost an insect eye view of the world. She invites the viewer to sit where she sits, and enjoy the quiet observation of nature. Notes are often added to paintings, giving her work a personal, sketchbook quality, adding to the viewers sense of being present.

Chamber’s work can currently be seen at The Bakery, Portobello Road, where she is a member of the artist led gallery. She is also a member of Wimbledon Art Studios, with whom she exhibits twice a year at Wimbledon Art Fair, and she recently exhibited at the Mall Galleries with the Royal Society for painters in Watercolours.
