Emma Jeffryes

To begin with I enjoyed working directly from life, be it from a cliff top or in amongst the boats in the harbour. Thus being able to make an immediate response to the surroundings, which I felt maintained a certain freshness in the work.
The challenge for me is to capture the beauty of the sea and surroundings, as well as creating works that are individual, fresh, alive and considered in terms of form, colour and space. Ten years on from first discovering St Ives, I am just as captivated by it, but I'm beginning to spend more time working on ideas in the studio. I'm almost finding I can work more freely and be more experimental this way. I will always continue to work directly from life, but feel the studio work is adding an interesting dimension to my work as a whole.
