Emma Souter

Being able to draw well gives a fundamental strength and creative freedom to an artist, no matter what the medium, subject matter or discipline.
Emma avidly drew ever since she could hold a pencil, and it was clear a career as an artist would follow for this Oxfordshire based contemporary painter. Honing her skills through both personal practice and education, Emma has studied both Foundation Art & Design at Central Saint Martins and gained a degree in Fine Art at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College, graduating in 2001.

Following graduation, Emma continued study to obtain her teaching qualification, and has taught part time alongside her studio practice, since 2006. As a part of her Teaching within Adult education and family learning, Emma has worked for Buckinghamshire Adult learning, Artsmart and Daler Rowney. Emma progressed to become an Offender Learning Art Tutor for The Manchester College and Milton Keynes College, education providers for Her Majesty’s Prisons’.

Emma has appeared in a number of local and international exhibitions, was Resident artist and International export artist for Daler Rowney from 2009 to 2011. Alongside her studio practice, Emma is currently studying to obtain her MA in Interdisciplinary Arts and is a sessional art tutor in her spare time.

Reflecting on her work as an artist and tutor Emma states that having a solid foundation in both classical and modern drawing practice is essential. “Being able to draw well gives a fundamental strength and creative freedom to an artist, no matter what the medium, subject matter or discipline. Sketching is an instant response and retains a freshness that an over thought or reworked piece lacks. Whether it is a sketch of something in front of me, a memory, a book I have read, a newspaper headline or a piece of music, it is the initial reaction that is the most honest. I believe there are essentially 3 different types of drawing, although on reflection I may decide that there are more. There is drawing as a means of representation, drawing as a means of expression and drawing as a means of understanding. And in the creation of some of my works I have used all three and learnt a great deal about myself.”
