Unison Colour welcomes Emma Colbert as an Associate Artist
Having graduated at UCA Maidstone with BA Hons Illustration in 2007, Emma Colbert began working on portrait commissions and producing her own series of wildlife pastel paintings. She is now a leading animal portrait artist, endorsed by Unison Soft Colour Pastels. She has had the honour of creating colour selections of soft pastels for them designed specifically for painting animals.
After discovering pastel at a young age, Emma knew this was the medium in which she wanted to develop. An equal passion for animals has fuelled a love of painting them. Using pastels in a painterly way Emma creates highly detailed, vibrant work inspired by the beauty of nature and light.
Wanting to spend more time in nature, Emma currently lives and works in a motorhome with her partner Andrew and their miniature dachshund Brocci. While touring around Europe this has really opened up the opportunity to photograph wildlife and spend long days painting in her studio set up in the back of the camper. You can follow Emma’s art and travels on her blog.
Emma was recently awarded the ‘Reader’s Choice’ award from Artists & Illustrators Artist of the Year exhibition. Her work continues to grow in popularity with collectors worldwide. With her current travels Emma hopes to broaden the reach of her art by demoing and exhibiting in the many countries she visits.
