Emily Roberts

Emily Roberts Portrait artist of the year series

After training at Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence, where she also took on various teaching roles, Emily moved to Margate, and then Cornwall.

Emily has taught in studios in Antwerp, Basel, Florence, Firle and London. She has exhibited in the Turner Contemporary, the Royal Academy and the Mall Galleries and her work is held in private collections across Europe and North America.

In her newer, more personal work, she hopes to bring traditional methods to a contemporary experience, bridging the void between the visual tradition and the modern psyche.
