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

– Edward Hopper 


Emily Jarvis was born in Cambridge in 1987. She has always lived in the East of England and has always shown a talent for art.

Despite being three months premature, Emily has met great successes, studying at Kings School in Ely, then in Cambridge and finally graduating with a first class honours from NUCA in Fine Art in 2008.

She is now one of the regions most exciting young artists dedicating all of her time to her work. With her 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.

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

“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.”
