At Home and Away

Emma Gleadhill

Artwork: A leap of faith at Rosebay (2023)

Emma is a watercolour artist, based in Sydney's inner west.

She enjoys using her paintbrush to capture moments of wonder that brighten her day. This might be a family of colourful beach towels drying on a fence, the way the mid-day sun catches a storefront, or the dappled light falling between the branches of a tree onto a group of friends having lunch at a cafe.

Her work captures her delight in such moments, whether in her local neighbourhood in Sydney's inner west, travelling around regional New South Wales or on holiday overseas.

She takes photographs to capture the light and shade, colour, symmetry, or movement of the world around her and then extends her enjoyment at that moment of wonder by painting it.

This exhibition is a celebration of those everyday scenes and moments, at home and away, that make life sparkle.

Emma also enjoys painting commissioned pieces that capture the wonderful people, pets and places that brighten the lives of others.

Emma has a Bachelor of Visual Arts from Monash University. More recently she has learnt under Carla Hananiah and Tanya Baily at the ArtEst Art School in Leichardt. Emma has also attended workshops, including Alvaro Castagnet's workshop run by Cilla Campbell. She has recently begun to enter art prizes and was a finalist in the 2021 Milburn Art Prize and the 2022 Greenway Art Prize.
