"If I Could Say It In Words There Would Be No Reason To Paint"

– Edward Hopper 


Emily is now one of the regions most exciting young artists dedicating all of her time to her work, delivering stunning series of contemporary portraiture and bespoke private commissions.

With her first degree in Fine Art from NUCA, a passion for colour and her flair working with oils she masterfully creates portraiture in a unique but realistic style. While the aesthetics are important to the artist her style delivers depth, mood and emotion.

“For me, Art encompasses my life – it is everywhere – all the way from a concept, or a sketch, to stretching my canvas, to delivering a piece to a client or an exhibition – it’s so gratifying and I feel very lucky for that… I hope to keep creating pieces which are not only noted for their composition but provoke thought, query or emotion.”

Brave colour and scale choices are consistent themes in the artists own works and these inspirations can also be seen in her commissioned pieces produced for clients and private collectors.

As well as her many solo and group exhibitions, and various awards, Emily Jarvis has been featured in Elle & Harpers Bazaar magazines.

The artist was selected to be part of the Art en Capital exhibition at the Grand Palais and Louvre in Paris and her works are collected as far from ‘home’ as Gibraltar, Holland and Portugal.
