Emily Longhurst

Emily Longhurst is an artist based in Norfolk. Her work is inspired by her surroundings; the beautiful Norfolk countryside and coastline. The sea itself is her main source of inspiration, she loves 'watching its ever changing mood, energy and colour'.

 

Emily has recently started to create sailboats, where the sail becomes her canvas. She enjoys playing with perspective, and painting on such an unconventional shape. Each sailboat has a unique, hand painted design. The hulls of the boats are made from driftwood and reclaimed wood, often found on the Norfolk beaches near her home.
