Emma Holliday is a painter and colourist who can also be found delving into the world of printmaking. Drawing is the root of all Holliday’s work and an illustrative response to words has been an interesting thread throughout her career.
Holliday has worked collaboratively with many writers as well as painting within libraries, bookshops and universities. She finds the literary approach inspiring and the working relationship very creative.
Originally from the south of England, Holliday is now based in the North East. Mostly self-taught, Holliday’s work is vibrant and expressive. She exhibits at various galleries, as well as at Open Studio events and via her website
