Hello, my name is Emma Carlisle, an artist and illustrator living on the Southwest coast.

Over the last few years, I’ve been exploring Devon and Cornwall within my sketchbooks, and if you follow me on Instagram you’ll have already seen me drawing on location – from the tops of Dartmoor Tors right down to the rocky cliffs of Zennor in Cornwall.

My paintings start on location where I take photos and observe the scenery, although my favourite way to capture a sense of place is to draw en plein air in my sketchbook. Colour and texture play a huge part in my final artwork and this is what I try to focus on in my location drawings.

Back at the studio, my paintings begin with layering, mark making and following my intuition. I work across several pieces at once and as they develop I start to form compositions within the chaos. At this stage, I reference my sketchbooks and see how drawings made on location can inspire the structures of the pieces.

Painting this way means that each piece has a strong connection to the South West without being tied to a specific place, allowing the viewer to form their own narrative within the landscapes.
