Emma Louise Grady's paintings explore the practice of intuitive mark-making. Inspired by vivid colours; her surroundings also influence her creative process. Through the exploration of patterns, her work represents a sense of freedom and fluidity. The patterns created are unique to each painting, allowing them to stand on their own.

With every intricate detail committed to her painting, it creates worlds that exist only within each other. Each piece created has endured a variety of process stages, allowing it to have a significant amount of layering to each painting, creating a sense of depth. In a world where commitment to a concept is favourable, her work stands alone. Vibrancy takes the lead.

Studying contemporary art since 2013, she has achieved a BA honors degree in Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. Working as an independent artist since my graduation in 2019 has further refined her artistic skills. She is also an Artist in Residency for the company Enterprise Mentoring. This has provided me with my own studio in the city centre of Glasgow, Scotland.

During the months of September and October of 2019, she had the opportunity to live and work as an artist in Florence after winning the John Kinross Scholarship. This experience has helped her flourish as an artist, encouraging her to explore different mediums, compositions, and colours.

She was also given the opportunity to exhibit my work at the Royal Scottish Academy for their exhibition, 'New Contemporaries 2020'. This is where I was awarded the 'Fleming-Wyfold Foundation Award, for best painter or draughtsman/woman'. With each day her practice continues to evolve and explore the world around her. As she continues to grow, so too will her paintings.
