Emma read

For artist Emma Read, the sea is her muse. It’s often what’s been closest to her – as a child she grew up by the British coast in Deal, and has extensively travelled to watched her partner surf around the world. Working in acrylic and ink, Read delicately layers paint and water to create dreamy […]
