About Firehorse Arts
Firehorse Arts is the brainchild of Bude artist, Emma Cooper. Here Emma tells us a little bit more about her paintings, her technique and the equine inspiration behind her work.
“I have been working on a series of artworks that explore our connections with nature through our environment. I am influenced by my love of horses and movement, and like to find ways of expressing this through use of colour and line.
I use water colours because of there fluid but uncontrollable outcomes and pen to tighten up my painting. Its almost a way of restraining the unpredictability of the paint. My style is expressive but controlled, figurative but fantastical, opposing in many ways.
I find painting very therapeutic, and a great way to escape the traumas of everyday life, being lost in the moment can free your mind and lift your spirit.”
