My name is Emma Connolly. I live in Bedfordshire and I am a working artist. I practice and sell a range of art from pottery, paintings and photography. My collections are inspired by florals and seasonal life in the country. I spend a huge amount of time in Suffolk where I feel a sense of calm and place. My colour palette is soft and muted and my work is often quite rightly described as soft and feminine. I like to paint in oils using just my fingers as I feel it gives a greater sense of freedom and connection to the piece. I also do mostly hand building when creating works in porcelain. I create functional yet beautiful pottery often adorned with flowers and touches of gold.
My work has been exhibited in galleries in Hampshire, Bedfordshire & Dorset.
