Emma Blyth



ARTIST PROFILE OF Emma Blyth

PROFILE
Emma’s paintings express a passion for colour and unique sense of translating Australian culture to canvas. Living in Western Australia has inspired Emma to utilise her large brushstrokes & vibrant colours to portray scenes from the rugged Kimberly outback to the beautiful beaches of the southwest. Culinary delights, sail boats, sunbaking beach babes & Australian wildlife romp across the vivid canvas with a sense of fun & liveliness.

Emma’s love of Australia is obvious and she has travelled much of it camping out the back of a ute with a sketchbook in her hand. The outback inspires her with it’s unique colours, remoteness and wildlife. Waterfalls and brolgas of the Kimberley, rock art and billabongs of Kakadu, cockies flying over spectacular gorges in Litchfield, turquoise bays of the Daintree, Cape York and WA’s southwest.

Emma’s fun simplistic style of art stems from her love of life on the road.
“Camping on a river under a boab tree surrounded by brolgas, bush turkeys & cockatoos. Whistling kites hovering in the smoke of our campfire. Barramundi jumping as my man catches a mudcrab and cooks it on the coals for dinner. I love capturing the simplicity of life in this unique part of our country on canvas”.

Emma has been commissioned for many pieces, both in private collections and commercial applications such as artworks throughout the rooms at Seashells Resort, promotional posters and merchandise for the annual Mandurah Crab Fest and paintings for the Waters & Rivers Commission.
