Contemporary Fine art Gallery in South Devon

Emma Carter

‘I love big stormy seas, wild winds and the raw coastline of the southwest. I like islands too, especially Burgh Island where I can come home to. I never tire of this region’s rich inspiration. I like empty beaches where I can swim on hot sunny English days, and big wide skies that offer up a myriad of colours. I like tides coming in and watching tides going out. I dream, I think, I paint. I paint what I love. I try to translate that free spirited essence that I think we all crave from time to time’.
