Meet Emily J Horner

Emily J Horner was born in England in 1988 and from an early age showed a huge passion for drawing, painting and anything else that involved using her hands to create something beautiful from nothing.

Even as a child she knew she wanted to be an artist when she grew up, but life doesn’t always take us in the direction we have planned. At the age of 18 she started her own alternative fashion business, initially intended as a means of making some quick cash to help fund her studies in fine art but somehow it turned into a full blown…

Why Does It Take So Long to Finish a Painting?

People ask me all the time, “How long does it take you to do a painting?” It depends. I rarely finish a painting the same day I start it. Usually, it takes 2-3 sittings before I experience that definitive moment of “it’s done.” Each sitting is approximately 3 hours. If the painting is small, I may be able to finish within 2 hours.
