Emma McArthur

Artist Bio

Emma is an artist with a day job in book publishing. She made a drawing a day for the whole of 2018 and 2019, something that started as an exercise to help concentration and help to form her artistic identity through practice. However, over time her daily drawings have developed into explorations of the physical form, identity and structure. From evolving her own original life drawings, and moving much deeper into the structure that makes up each of us, she is able to show their beauty and fragility. Identity has played a part in much of her work through illustrations, screen prints and lino printing, and continues to mature each day through her practice.
Her work has featured in the Journal of Visual Communication in Medicine in 2019.
