Emily Dewsnap is a freelance artist, based in Leeds, who mainly works in acrylic, gouache and soft pencil, applied with delicate brushstrokes, bold palette knives, heavy graphite and smudgy fingers.

Born within the wild hills of the northern Peak District, Emily began painting and drawing at a very early age and was a regular entrant to the Derbyshire Open Art Exhibition. When working for leisure, her pieces focus mainly on figurative subjects with dark, brooding and occasionally erotic interpretations.

Emily primarily works on commission, which means that she has developed a broad range of styles to suit customers’ needs. From pets to family members, precise buildings to abstract countrysides, delicate fairies to valiant superheroes and much more, she is eager to take on any challenge and add her own twist.

Design is also a passion of Emily’s. Whether your need is for pitch documents, posters, flyers or rebranding, she creates eye-catching, bespoke designs with a professional touch.

When not creating, Emily enjoys myriad hobbies including walking, singing, reading, writing and the odd glass of rioja with friends. She currently lives near Kirkstall Abbey, where she is in easy reach of both the bustling urban setting of Leeds and the rural Yorkshire landscape.
