Store Kunstdag!

Two Saturdays ago now, on the 9th May, I participated in my first international exhibition! I had a wonderful day exhibiting my work alongside many other talented local and international artists in Hellerup, Copenhagen at the Fritidscenter as a part of their Store Kunstdag (Big Art Day!) Outside, Denmark brought to us grey clouds and…

The art of sharing art…

On the 9th of May I will be exhibiting my work as a part of a Big Art Day held for the community by the Hellerup Fritidscenter here in Copenhagen. The day is designed to share art with the local community and to inspire children and young people to become involved in a variety of…

Danish Easter bunnies…

Easter, for me, has always been family, ravioli, cannoli, chocolate eggs and bunnies. Lots and lots of bunnies. Easter this year has been a little different. Sixteen thousand and sixty three kilometres away from home, my family and my easter bunny, Patter (see the cutie below) are feeling very much out of reach. But, I’ve…

Words, pictures, play…

  Time. Time has not been on my side when it comes to my art making. During me years at art school, time was for drawing and painting, but the work I produced felt more forced than natural. The work I produced helped shape my approach to making but, for the most part, it was…

I began to see myself as a ‘bunny lady’ about 4 years ago when my partner and I adopted a tiny, fluffy grey Netherland Dwarf rabbit who we named, Patter. He nuzzled his way into my heart and my art and never left. Before that though, I was always a ‘cat lady’ (and still am!)…

An Emily puzzle…

This afternoon, I set about writing the ‘About’ page of this website. It felt so odd sitting down with the task of summarising yourself, your art and your experiences into a few paragraphs when it has taken me 23 years of growing to become the way I am. I thought, I questioned and I typed….

More flower love (and more little bunnies…)

    It’s Sunday again, my favourite day, because on Sundays we buy flowers. At first, we bought flowers to bring life to our boxy, white apartment (an apartment so white it feels somewhat like a tiny hospital.) Now we find ourselves wandering across the street to the florist partly out of habit, partly out of…

Sundays, anemones and a sleeping rabbit…

Sundays are for sleeping in, breakfast out and catching up on the things that pass you by mid week while you aren’t looking. Today, for me, those things were flowers and drawing. Despite the cover of grey today, spring has begun to settle here in Copenhagen, her sunshine fingers planting themselves deep into the heart…
