Emma Stibbon

Emma Stibbon studied at Portsmouth College of Art, Goldsmiths College and the University of the West of England. An award-winning artist with an international reputation, she participated in Arctic Circle 2013, an art and science expedition to the Arctic Circle.

Drawing is the heart of Emma’s practice and she has travelled widely, recording her responses to the physical appearance and psychological impact of natural and built environments. Working from sketches and photographic records, Emma creates stark, monochrome, often large-scale works on paper. Romantic in character, they dramatise the effects of human intervention and natural phenomena on monumental structures and explore the fragility of existence.
