Emma-Leone Palmer

Emma's 'Paint Play Series' uses paint, lube, glitter and water, smeared, dripped, flicked and splashed onto the subjects face, as a prop to trigger their reactions, emotions… let it out!! This 'theatre' is unpremeditated, 100's of photos are taken. The paintings made from these emphasise the moments when they are lost in themselves.

Emma appeared as a contestant on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year, where she painted the film star, Richard E. Grant. The iconic Paint-Play series continues to inspire collectors the world over. Her work is also owned by British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies and many more.
