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 career and her clothing label became a global brand.

10 years down the line, she finally admitted to herself that she wasn’t happy and that she longed to spend more time painting, if only there were enough hours in the day! In 2016 after a very long debate she finally took the plunge and closed down her business to be reunited with her first love, painting.

Oils have always been Emily’s preferred medium as she loves the strength of confidence they give to her as well as the rich, full bodied vibrant colour and texture that cannot be achieved with another medium. She works in a variety of styles, interchanging between brushes, sponges, palette knives and other implements; whatever the mood takes.

Emily is a great admirer of the dreamy feel created within the impressionist style as well as the intricacy and lifelike feel of realism. When producing her own work she tends to drift between the two. Having grown up in the countryside and taking frequent walks around woodlands, lakes, beaches and other places of natural beauty, her favourite subjects to paint are landscapes, scenery and seascapes.
