Emily Louise Heard is a self-taught artist from South Wales, where she lives with her husband, Matthew, her one year old daughter, Elvia, and an excitable chocolate Labrador named Womble.
It never ceases to amaze me how art can have such an uplifting impact on our emotional well-being and connect with us on all levels. Emotions are the spirit of life, and I am extremely passionate about capturing them in my work.
I paint using a mixture of acrylic paint, ink, and shimmering pearlised powders and paints, with the aim to create work that is both eye catching and dreamy. My brush strokes are expressive and filled with emotion and I hope my passion for depicting the magic of the sky is clear. I want my work appeal to the child within us all and bring them alive with joy.
Painting is my way of celebrating my time on earth. We are on this lovely, weird little planet for such a fleeting time it would be senseless not to follow our hearts.
