Born in Southampton in 1982 Emma Richardson is a pioneer of contemporary abstract art. 

Revelling in the unpredictable nature of her chosen medium of oil and charcoal on linen, Richardson intuitively shapes these tools of colour and movement into forms laden with multiple illusions.

In doing so she calls to attention the fluid nature of the human psyche with a focus on basic human drives.

Since graduating with a BA Honors in Fine Art from Wimbledon School of Art in 2004, Richardson has split her time between her fine art practice and performing in the band, Band Of Skulls.

Richardson currently works and lives in her hometown.
