Emma Coleman Jones
Emma's work draws upon a deep knowledge and understanding of natural history and is especially focused on trees and the way in which they define our landscapes and the human interactions within them. Emma's developing artistic practice is informed by a career in research and teaching in the biological, environmental and human sciences. The small drawings, made almost entirely in the field in the Oxford area, are light, instinctive responses, set down in whichever combination of materials best suits the occasion. Over the past year many of these sketches have focused on the quiet resilience of nature.
