Emma Lopes

Growing up in Somerset, UK, Emma always loved to draw and paint.  She also wanted to be a naturalist or marine biologist and she struggled to choose between science and art as a career.  She studied Fine Art at The University of the Arts London and at Universidad Complutense de Madrid.  A core belief, which filters into every aspect of her work, is that all life is interconnected.  She strives to support social and environmental justice movements through her work.  Emma expresses herself using watercolor, gouache, collage, and sometimes even marine debris.  Emma also uses detail, pattern and color to focus our attention on the vibrancy and wonder of nature.  Today, she resides in Ericeira, Portugal with her husband and son.  She feels fortunate to be able to feed her passion for mother earth into her artwork.
