My artwork style varies dramatically as I paint according to my feelings, experiences and even the materials I decide to work with. I love to be challenged and I enjoy experimenting with new techniques, genres and art movements. I have a real love for abstract art especially the freedom it gives you. I would describe my style as eclectic.
My background as a lawyer has also influenced my art as I can be very conservative and other times very spontaneous and full of emotions.

About Emma Leggett
I have always been passionate about art. I studied art throughout my schooling years and I chose Art History majoring in Print Making as my tertiary entrance subject at high school. I thoroughly enjoyed metal plate etchings, woodcuts, dry point, lithographs, collagraph and monotype printing. I have always done art as a hobby and attended classes such as life nude drawings, pottery, mosaics, decoupage, jewellery making and other craft activities.
I love all types of different mediums such as acrylics, watercolours and mixed media. I am influenced by Miro, Rauschenberg, Kandinsky, Pollock, Cezanne, Mondrian, Hundertwasser and de Kooning.
Art is so important in your life as it can create wonderful feelings such as serenity, calm, happiness, and confidence. Art can also evoke positive energy and wonderful memories. Even the colours used in an art piece can create different moods and healing. For example, yellow is connected to self-confidence, self-esteem and alertness and blue is linked with wisdom, calm and reflection. Art should be all around you not only in your home but also at your work place.
All my paintings are originals. They are not prints.
Please note that during the creative process paint, oil pastels and other mediums can end up on the back of the painting. This does not effect the art and you will not see it when framed. Instead this creative process proves its authenticity. To truly appreciate the beauty of my art all my paintings should be framed. Colour disclaimer: The colour of my paintings can differ slightly depending on your computer/phone monitor.
Enjoy my artworks. I hope they give you so much pleasure.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” –Pablo Picasso
