"I will make my way in the wilderness & rivers in the dessert"...
This is a beautiful sentiment right now. Even in this strange time, I am endeavouring to make meaningfull connection in my life. I strive to create comfort & happiness for myself, and others by sharing my art, creativity and happiness.
This new collection is the first of a new way of working in the art studio. Surrounded by family, in isolation, dreaming of wandering the earth. New art for a new time.
"Off to the forest I go!
To lose my mind
and find my soul"

ARTIST EMMA WARD
My desire is to create brushstrokes that connect paint with emotion
and make marks that whisper stories, to embrace creativity, connection and beauty in the every day.
Can you feel it? There is a change in the air. I'm not just talking about the seasons, although I AM looking forward to a gentler time. I am also referring to a new, enchanting collection of work I've been creating which celebrates our emotional connections with a family of trees.
I am responding and documenting their aura and spirit as an 'ode' in these works to the magic of these trees and their shared stories with ours.
As our lives become digitised and urbane, our focus delves inwards and downwards, if we learn to pause for just a moment and look 'up' we may be surprised by the peace we find in the canopy of trees.
I suggest, you kick off your shoes, make yourself a warm, inviting cup of tea, and make time to view this work right now!
It's lovely to see you!
STAY A WHILE...
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE
I am a full time artist working from my home art studio in Central Queensland, Australia.
My studio is called the "Meraki' studio which is a beautiful Greek word which means 'to do something with soul, creativity or love; to put something of yourself into your work.
This is a perfect word that not only describes my studio, but my website as well. Meraki is the whole ethos of my arts practise.
I look forward to sharing my art with you.
We are all adjusting to new environments, working from home, and hopefully, finding a new rhythm. I wanted to make sure that even though we are apart, and even though you can't visit the studio or share a glass of wine with me at an exhibition, that we can still connect. I wanted you to be able to visit my website and find a little bit of 'happy' to brighten your day.
So I've relisted some of my all time favourite artworks as FINE ART PRINTS and created a 'Little Gift Shop' for those of you who (like me) are enjoying a little bit on online shopping these days!
