Our 8th artist is Emma Sidwell. Emma is an artist & jeweller living in New Mills, creating primarily in pen and watercolour. She works from her imagination, drawing wide-ranging inspiration from different historical cultures and artistic styles, building up fantastical worlds which she then draws aspects of. She also makes intricate resin jewellery that incorporates elements of her pictures within the resin, creating wearable art, and is the artist and designer for New Mills’ own Torrside Brewing.
The ‘Dogs Of War’ series started with Emma painting her own Jack Russell, Plato, in Moche armour, and then grew through a number of commissions. It has since branched out with requests for naval cats, and even Inca guinea pigs!
