Jemma completed a Foundation Course at Leith School of Art before going on to study BA Hons in Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art.
Light, sense of place, atmosphere and experience are fundamental elements in Jemma’s work. Her paintings come from her experience of, and relationship to the landscape. This may be through trying to capture the essence of a moment, weather, illumination, or perhaps colour.
She works collating a series of drawings, colour studies and collages, done on location, and then develops these in the studio, focusing on the main elements drawn from that particular experience. Colour and Light drive her work.
