About the Artist

Educated in London at Chelsea College of Art and The Slade, Emma Stroude lives and works in North Sligo.

Ireland’s history and Atlantic coastline influence the two diverse themes which run parallel in her practice. One stems from her interest
in women’s role in Irish history resulting in an ever evolving series of charcoal portraits of key female figures. The other has emerged from her
surrounding environment, the dramatic weather and ever changing light of the North West and the culture of being on the move, glimpsing transient
moments of beauty from a moving vehicle.

She has work in public and private collections in Europe and the USA. Collections include OPW, Imago Mundi (Luciano Benetton) and Pierce
Brosnan.
